Chelsea Flower Show

May 28, 2018

Flowers galore, great outfits, shops and champagne, what more could a girl ask for?

I’ve lived in London for nearly ten years, but this week was the first time I’ve visited RHS Chelsea Flower Show – and it was wonderful.

If embroidered dresses are this summers must have clothing item, a purple lupin was definitely the vogue flower of Chelsea Flower Show. In fact purple flowers full stop were in.

How sculptures interacted with the landscape. In fact there were more shops selling outdoor kitchens, fire pits and miniature play houses than there were flowers. A very cute wooden pig sculpture leaning over a stable door that says I heart vegans was nearly enough to put me off my bacon sandwich.

Whilst there was a huge array to see and do, some of my favourites are below.

I loved the David Harber and Savills garden showing a giant eye shaped sculpture. There was definitely a trend for slightly wild and not overly manicured gardens, which I know my mum will be most relieved about.

LG Eco City feature a kitchen going to a beautiful sunken seating area – a dream flat for lots of people!

I loved the South African garden with drought resistant plants as that felt closest to something I could achieve as someone who always fails to water their plants!

My favourite shop sold play houses for children that looked like miniature real houses.
