BloomsArt Shows How the Chelsea Flower Show Encourages Local Businesses to Bloom
The Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show is one of the most renowned horticultural events in the world. It has been held every year since 1913, apart from some years during the First and Second World Wars.
It is the place to go to see fantastical gardens and gardening gadgets. And while it may not be the biggest flower show in the UK, compared to the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, it is the most prestigious.
Even when rain turns it into the Chelsea Shower Flow, it still attracts 165 000 visitors a year, and would probably attract more if the attendance number were not capped.
In addition to Chelsea flowers, garden designers at the show regularly fall prey to the dreaded Chelsea Flu, which is attributed to pollen from nearby 550 Plane trees. Each year there are more than 500 exhibitors from 20 different countries, as well as 275 trade stands.
All the show garden are built from scratch in just 19 days and dismantled in only 5days.Each garden that is entered into the competition is given 45 minutes for the judges to look at it and chat with the creators.
This flower show celebrates stylish, inventive gardens, and you will see 0 garden gnome there as they are banned, apart from in the show’s centenary in 2013.
There are 2 companies who had gardens exhibited at the first ever show, who still exhibit now:Blackmore and Langdon and McBean’s Orchids.
The visitors who flock to the flower show at Chelsea also enjoy around:
- 10,823 glasses of Champagne,
- 7,720 glasses of Pimms and
- 28,447 cakes.
