About the Show
Held in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea since 1913, RHS Chelsea is the world's most famous Flower Show. Nowehere makes gardening more fashionable, with a catwalk of colour and creativity, the biggest and brightest ideas, the latest plant trends and the pinnacle of garden design - this show is one the world wants to see.
One of the biggest attractions at RHS Chelsea are the spectacular gardens. Unrivalled in their ability to create the extraordinary, the Show Gardens display the largest and most outstanding designs, acting as perfect examples of horticultural excellence and innovative landscape design.
New for 2018, the Space to Grow Gardens offer original ideas, trends and take home messages to inspire visitors to transform their outdoor spaces and feel the benefits that growing can bring.
And continuing into their extended location on the plateau in Ranelagh Gardens, the popular Artisans aim to revitalise traditional materials and methods with new design approaches.
At the heart of the Show lies the Great Pavilion, which not only plays host to almost 100 nurseries, new and old, but also houses the Discovery Zone, an area dedicated to highlighting the very cutting edge of technology in the world of horiculture.
An array of Shopping Stands transform the showground into a purchaser's paradise, each selling the very best in garden structures, accessories and products, and complementing the quality of the gardens and floral exhibits on show.
Combine all of this with fashion-forward thinking, celebrity visitors and a Royal flourish, and it's no wonder RHS Chelsea is the highlight of the horticultural calendar.
