Established in 1913, on the grounds of the Chelsea Royal Hospital in London, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is Britain’s most prestigious flower show. The show organized by The Royal Horticulture Society has become one of the most celebrated annual events in the world and the showcase for horticultural excellence. The show covers 11 acres of ground and features over 500 exhibitors including show gardens, nurseries, floristry, educational displays and trade stands. The event also provides a showcase for gardening trends, and show gardens over the years have ranged from Japanese and topiary gardens to rock gardens, cottage gardens, and contemporary sculptural gardens. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are traditionally among the first to see the exhibits when they take a private tour every year on opening day.
