CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW 25-29 MAY 2010 · Royal Hospital – Chelsea, London

The RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Chelsea Flower Show is the greatest flower show in the world. It just started very promisingly yesterday under a blessing summery sun.

The Awards were also announced yesterday, among others The Best Show Garden and The Most Inspiring New Plant were awarded:

The RHS Chelsea 2010 Plant of the Year – the most inspiring new plant at the RHS show – is:

Streptocarpus ‘Harlequin Blue’, chosen from a shortlist of 20 plants and voted on by the RHS Plants Advisory Committee.

While Andy Sturgeon’s holiday inspired Daily Telegraph Garden won the prestigious Best in Show Award.

I’ll be visiting the show this Friday, so stay tuned for the latest from the most glamorous and colourful event of the year!
