The Chelsea Flower Show is much more than a bunch of roses and a bunch of wacky gardeners. It started way back in 1820 (when succulents definitely weren't on trend). Since then, the show has blossomed into one of the world's biggest celebrations of horticulture and flower art and has become one of the most popular annual London events in May (this year it’s on May 24-28). It's a feast for the eyes and the nose (that is, for anyone who doesn't suffer from a pollen allergy). Here are seven facts to get you bloomin' excited about all things floral.
