    Default Photos from Chelsea Flower Show

    The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the ultimate event in the gardening year. It sets the latest gardening trends, features the newest and most desirable gardening products and creates an explosion of colours and scents.




    The Laurent-Perrier garden

    Designed by Tom Stuart-Smith, the Laurent-Perrier garden is one of elegant understatement, with green and white almost the only colours


    Designer: Adam Frost
    Contractor: New Ground Landscapes
    This garden demonstrates that a front garden need not be a dull space - it acts as a welcome for the owners and their guests. The design is intended to make the front garden as usable as the back.
    Large cubed box hedges give structure, as do two raised steel water rills, which also give movement and sound to the garden.

    Fleming's Nurseries

    A garden was a distinctively Australian theme, using materials, colours and plants of the Australian landscape. This garden was designed by Jamie Durie

    They're all gorgeous. I especially liked the Bupa and the one inspired by George Harrison.
