Chelsea Flower Show 2014

The show's popularity never seems to wane and, although not the year's largest event, it's certainly the most prestigious with the Royal Family present at the opening each year.

As usual they'll be something to interest everyone, a huge range of gardens and exhibits, brand new products and the latest plants.

Beautiful Gardens

Gardens at Chelsea fall into three categories, Show, Fresh and Artisan and this year the accent will be on young garden designers, emerging talent given the chance to be produce gardens that are challenging and inspiring.

The themes are varied, illustrating subjects as diverse as water management issues and the natural landscape of Cape Cod. The sponsors, M&G have created a garden that we all desire, described as 'a contemporary paradise'.

To attain a Gold, Silver Gilt, Silver or Bronze award, the gardens are judged on such criteria as impact and originality, quality of materials and workmanship. The choice of plants is also taken into consideration, their colour, texture and association. Then the overall design is assessed on unity, balance and creativity.

Inspiration Everywhere

There's new ideas all through the show with merchandise to transform and invigorate your own garden.

Haddonstone will be launching their Sir John Soane Museum range of cast stone ornaments based on that institution's fantastic collection of artefacts and exhibitors offer everything a gardener needs from irrigation systems based on sustainable water supplies by Hozelock to the marvellous garden furniture of Barlow Tyrie.

Visitors to the 2014 RHS Chelsea Flower Show will get the chance to enjoy modern, inventive gardens, new plants and ingenious new products. If you visit the show please let us hear about it, we'd love to see your comments.
