Chelsea Flower Show

News from the show is that between deluges business was brisk yesterday, opening day, and slower today with more rain things like the power going down which turned the fountains off.

Chelsea Flower Show, Chelsea, London. Exhibitors in the Market Place this year include Triton UK, Sotheby's, Silverland Stone, Holloways and Architectural Heritage. We have not heard of specific involvement of the salvage or garden antique trade in show gardens this year, but doubtless there is.

This is what the RHS says:
'Since 1913 the world’s greatest flower show has set the standards and trends in gardening all over the world. It has been held at the Royal Hospital since 1913 but was first held in Kensington in 1862. The 300 sundries exhibitors represent the very best in gardening products. With the most comprehensive media coverage of any gardening event the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is definitely the place to be seen. Annual attendance of 157,000 paying visitors (capped to ensure visitor comfort), 47 per cent of visitors are RHS members, 75 per cent of visitors are ABC1, 40 per cent of visitors spend six hours or more at the show'
