RHS Chelsea Flower Show - Remembering 2016 one and Anticipating 2017 one

May 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

It is only a few days to a brand new Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and so I would am sending a few photos of my favourite gardens from last year's show. Are we going to see even more exiting ones this year? The designers keep delivering amazing project every year and they have been doing it for over 100 years. The oldest and most renown flowers show in the worlds will surely surprise and amaze us again!

There will be a fewer big show gardens this year due to sponsorship problems but some designers are back, including Chris Beardshaw and James Basson. There will also be plenty of smaller gardens. Jo Whiley’s will have some  curved seating...

There also will be an elegant slightly forma garden ‘500 Years of Covent Garden’ by Lee Bestall, the project of which slightly reminds me of the garden below:

We will see woodland planting in The Morgan Stanley Garden by Chris Beardshow and as usual, the garden will be saved and donated to Groundwork. Beautiful woodland planting from last year's garden by Paul Martin:

The Royal Bank of Canada is also building a garden this year, showing us some Canadian boreal forest and lakes to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada and the 10th year of the RBC Blue Water Project™. And this what it was last year:

There is also the question of which garden is going to be The Best in Show this year.. Last year's winner:
