Gardening groupies and flower fanatics - I'm sure you needn't be told that the Chelsea Flower Show begins tomorrow. It's probably the most famous of the four Royal Horticultural Society's gardening shows and makes an excellent outing for both gardening experts and amateurs alike.
The amazing gardens on display take lots of planning and about a week or more to build and plant. They are then judged in five different categories:
- Flora Gardens and floral exhibits
- Hogg Exhibits of trees
- Knightian Exhibits of vegetables, including herbs
- Lindley Exhibits of special educational or scientific interest
- Grenfell Exhibits of pictures, photographs, floral arrangements and floristry
There are four medals to be won in each category ranging from gold, silver-gilt, silver and bronze. The quality of the gardens on show is incredibly high as world-class designers flex their green fingers and get digging. The show features ideas that influence future gardening trends and showcases the latest gardening products. Highlights of the show are the urban gardens, courtyard gardens and show gardens, although this year there are fewer sponsors and so the focus is more on making the most of small gardens.
