The RHS Chelsea Flower Show starts in 5 weeks and we’re starting to get excited! It seems like only yesterday that we won Plant of the Year at the 2017 show with our Mulberry Bush. But, it’s nearly time for us to make our way to Chelsea again and soak up all the beautiful, the creative and the innovative gardens. So here are just 3 reasons why we can’t wait for the action…
It’s all about wellbeing
1. This year’s show is set to focus on the power of the garden and the effects of plants and flowers on our wellbeing. The RHS are busy getting ready to show gorgeous gardens to demonstrate the positive impact our green spaces can have – in the face of everything from life’s challenges to environmental issues.
We’re passionate about using gardening to make a difference, so we’re already planning our visits to include plenty of time to wander the show gardens and glean inspiration for the coming year. There’s always been a connection between gardening and mindfulness, and we’re thrilled to see it celebrated this year.
The Chelsea Late Event
2. We love the fact that this year’s Chelsea isn’t all about the daytime…as tickets are available to experience the magic of the garden after nightfall. Gardening meets fairytale chic at the Chelsea Late Event on the Friday of the show, as live bands, wandering artists and an artisan food market will combine to create a captivating atmosphere.
Think glowing lanterns suspended from trees and the waft of hot food to make you feel warm inside. And we reckon this unique event’s going to be a hit with the next generation of gardeners. If you’re going along on the Friday, this event’s the perfect way to finish your 2018 Chelsea visit.
The Chelsea Flower Show inspires us
3. We’re so proud of our range of plants and flowers, bulbs and seeds, and one of our favourite things about Chelsea is that some of the leading names in garden design inspire us with creative new ideas to showcase our products. The wonderful thing about the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is that, just when you think you’ve seen it all, a new wave of designers turns everything we thought about gardening on its head – and it’s fab. Your outside space should boost your mood as soon as you step outside, and Chelsea’s set to be a colourful spectacle of creativity. And, when you’re ready to return home and add a touch of magic to your own garden, you’ll find your perfect products here at Suttons.
