The biggest horticultural show of the year returned to Royal Chelsea Hospital this Spring for the 109th annual Chelsea Flower Show!
The prestigious event returned in Spring for the first time in two years following last year’s historic Autumn show due to the pandemic. Back with over 30 impressive gardens, 13 Show Gardens and multiple Platinum Jubilee floral tributes, the 2022 show did not disappoint.

Whether there to discover new plants and trends or to sip Champagne and enjoy the finest dining experience, there is something for everyone at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Show Gardens, Balcony Gardens, Sanctuary Gardens and more, there was plenty to see at this years incredible Chelsea Flower Show.
Often referred to as the crown jewel of RHS Chelsea, The Great Pavilion is home to the beautiful floral displays and glorious spring flowers from the world’s finest growers and nurseries. New plants are often revealed here for the first time and there was a large number of Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal Winners in this tent alone.
Alongside the flower displays there were a number of educational exhibits highlighting the latest discoveries in horticultural science. These exhibits looked to inspire visitors with the benefits of gardening as well as sharing the positive impact It can have on mental wellbeing and climate change.
After a hugely popular debut in 2021, the Houseplant Studios returned providing inspiration for plant-filled living spaces. Packed with ideas for every room in the home, the Houseplant Studios displayed brilliant style ideas and practical tips for all things houseplants with designs ranging from an aerial indoor garden to a walk in terrarium.
Each year the very best gardens in each category are given the Gold, Silver Gilt, Silver and Bronze medals.
This year’s Gold Medal-winners include the Morris & Co. garden, The New Blue Peter Garden and The Still Garden. With so many outstanding gardens in each category, the breath-taking talent continues to grow each year.

Whilst there is no dress code for visiting Chelsea Flower Show, most guests typically dress in smart casual attire. Women might opt for a day-dress or skirt with floral print and men may chose a polo or collared shirt with chinos and a light jacket. With the unpredictable British weather, the best advice would be to layer in case of warm or cold spells.
Whilst Chelsea Flower Show is relatively small in terms of the overall footprint, you’re going to be doing an awful lot of walking, standing and slow-moving during the day. Wearing comfortable footwear is key to getting the most out of exploring the gardens.
Chelsea Flower Show is held in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea where it has been held almost every year since 1913.
