RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015
19th - 23rd May 2015

For four days each May, the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea come alive with the sights and smells of the finest collections of flowers in the world.

Life on the frontline in World War I will be the focus of a floral exhibit in the Great Pavilion at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year.

Birmingham City Council has joined forces with the Royal British Legion and the charity Thrive for the floral exhibit. The display will feature wartime memorabilia as well as giant poppies and reconstructions of the trenches.

Pennard Plants will also be commemorating the outbreak of the war with two back-to-back gardens reflecting the times before and after 1914.

The charity Perennial, meanwhile, is one of a number of exhibitors celebrating milestones at the 2015 show. Designer Jo Thompson will be working with Jim Buttress and Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants to produce a display to mark the charity’s 175th anniversary.

Jon Wheatley from Stone Barn will create a floral spectacle to celebrate 50 golden years of South West in Bloom, and Raymond Evison will launch a number of Clematis, including one chosen to celebrate his 25th Gold medal at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2013.

New nursery exhibitors include Drointon Nurseries, which is planning a more contemporary display of Auricula primulas, Brighter Blooms, which is making its debut with a display of Zantedeschia, and PW Bamboo, which will create a new bamboo exhibit.

The new Discovery area in the Great Pavilion will be full of scientific and educational exhibits including a display about the botanical source of paper.

Nothing compares to the show gardens, each one created with attention to detail by some of the world’s leading garden designers.

Their stunning ideas will provide you with lasting memories and endless inspiration whatever your budget. The smaller Chic, City, Courtyard and Sun Flower Street gardens will show you exactly what can be achieved in modest plots.

The Grand (Floral) Pavilion will host thousands of fabulous flowers including new plants that have never been seen before.

Visit the show and see the latest and greatest in gardening ideas and experience the wonder of the world’s most famous flower show from the RHS.

Planning of the show is an 18-month cycle, with applications for next year's Chelsea Flower Show already in the pipeline. Show and small garden applications were received by the end of July.

The RHS gardens panels then decide on which gardens are to be offered space at the show. Acceptances are confirmed in September and November. Floral pavilion exhibitors are confirmed in November.
