Latest Gardening Trends and Products

The Chelsea Flower Show is the place to find out about the latest gardening trends, to see the newest plants and the best gardening products and to get ideas and inspiration, or just be impressed by the dazzling display of flowers and plants. There are show gardens designed by famous garden designers, an endless variety of plants and gardening products and a stunning floral marquee. Several awards are given every year in different categories of horticulture.

There is also a bandstand with lots of music performances, a picnic area and several food courts that make sure visitors won’t go hungry. The Chelsea Flower Show is an important social occasion and over 150 000 visitors attend every year. More would probably go, but as only a restricted amount of people can fit into the exhibition space the number of visitors has been limited. Because of the flower show’s popularity, tickets must be booked in advance.

Flower Show Tickets and Opening Times

The Chelsea Flower Show is organized by the Royal Horticultural Society, and the event is held in the Royal Hospital in London’s Chelsea. The 2010 Chelsea Flower Show takes place from the 25th to the 29th of May, but the first two days are reserved only for members of the Royal Horticultural Society.

The show is open from 8 in the morning until 8 pm, but closes at 5.30 pm on the last day. Visitors can buy plants and products from the displays from 4 pm on the 29th of May. Tickets to the show can be bought online via the RHS Chelsea Flower Show website.

The easiest way to get to the Chelsea Flower Show is by public transport. The nearest London Underground station is Sloane Square on the Circle and District Lines and from the station it is a ten-minute walk to the flower show gates. There is also a bus service from London’s Victoria train station to the showground.
