The Great Pavilion
Sponsored by M&G Investments, the Chelsea Flower Show will feature the best of gardening, including the Great Pavilion, which is brimming with world-class growers and nurseries. The Pavilion has long since been considered the jewel in the event’s crown and everything points to another fantastic year. There are over 80 exhibitors creating beautiful displays, with many regulars returning in 2019 alongside newcomers.
For the first time ever, there will be a judged Show Garden in the Pavilion, which will be sponsored by IKEA. Titled “Gardening Will Save the World”, this is a creation by Tom Dixon, a British designer who has previously been awarded an OBE by the Queen, and is an interactive garden where you’ll be given the chance to walk through and see how to achieve sustainable and cost-effective solutions to growing food.
While you wait for May to arrive, you can enjoy some of the highlights from last year’s Chelsea Flower Show:
The Duchess’ Design
One of the most eagerly awaited displays is the RHS garden co-designed by the Duchess of Cambridge and award-winning landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects. This design is based on a woodland setting as a space for families and communities to come together and connect with nature. The beautiful garden will showcase, amongst other stunning features, a hollow log for children to climb through, a waterfall and a tree house, which forms the heart of the space.
The wild trees and shrubs, as well as the flowers, fruits and running water, create the perfect place to relax and get your ‘nature fix’. In addition, there are plenty of nesting sites and shelter for birds and other animals.
More Inspiring Gardens
By attending the Chelsea Flower Show, you’ll be able to enjoy gorgeous gardens from internationally-renowned designers, all of which are competing to win an RHS Gold medal or receive the Best Show Garden award. The different gardens also have different themes. From a creation inspired by rock formations on an Australian beach to gardens tackling issues such as climate change, you can expect a huge variety you’ll, no doubt, love to discover.
In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to explore a range of different flowers and plants, from cacti and succulents to orchids and roses.
Eat and Drink
Of course, you will also have the opportunity to dine in style when you attend the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. A familiar face to those who have attended the event in previous years is the fantastic Jardin Blanc, which is a highly creative dining experience prepared by award-winning Raymond Blanc OBE. Another returning restaurant is The Dorchester with the Famous Drawing Room where you can enjoy afternoon tea with French pastries and champagne.
After 8 pm, The Chelsea Late will keep you occupied with botanical-inspired cocktails, jazz music and the chance to walk through the Ranelagh Gardens after hours. There will also be floral demonstrations and free workshops, so why not take this chance to learn new skills?
