Chelsea Flower Show Celebrates its 100th Anniversary

This week, the Chelsea Flower Show opened for the 100th time to the public. From May 21st to 25th over 500 exhibitors are showing exciting new plants and fabulous garden ideas. The best garden designers in the world will present amazing extensive displays and inspirations for small spaces alike.

Queen Elisabeth herself is the patron of show organizers “The Royal Horticultural Society” and has already visited the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday, together with many members of the royal family. The forget-me-not show garden is in aid of Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale, which helps impoverished children in Lesotho.

The vote for the Plant of the Century is another highlight. Ten plants, each representing one decade, were chosen beforehand by a panel of horticultural experts and the public can cast their votes online for their favorite.

There is also an iPhone App available on iTunes, which will give you full details on every exhibitor and garden present at the show.
