The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show kicks off on Tuesday 21st May.

Highlights of this year’s amazing show include:

The Great Pavilion – showcasing the work of new and longstanding exhibitors. More than 80 exhibitors are lining up to create dazzling displays, with many regular favourites returning to the show.

The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden – inspired by the county’s history of industry and manufacturing, as well as its beautiful natural environment. Reminiscent of the urban regeneration that has taken place along many of Yorkshire’s canals, the garden consists of a towpath running next to a perennial meadow that borders a pair of narrow canal lock gates and a lock keeper’s lodge complete with private garden and vegetable patch.

The Resilience Garden – Commissioned to celebrate the Forestry Commission’s centenary, the garden looks ahead to the challenges facing forests of the future. It explores how our woodlands can be made resilient to a changing climate and the increasing threats of pests and diseases.
