Chelsea Flower Show moves online


The Chelsea Flower Show is moving online. Every morning of the virtual event between 18th and 23rd May, a leading designer, florist or gardening personality will provide a tour of their own private gardens.

Daily “school gardening clubs” will take place to provide activities for families to garden together, while “potting bench” demonstrations will show techniques for growing and maintaining plants.

Lunchtimes will see RHS advisers being joined by a special guest for an interactive Q&A session, while a special series of programmes celebrating the show will be broadcast on BBC One and Two throughout the week.

UK growers who would have been at the event will also provide behind-the-scenes tours of their nurseries and some will replicate the displays they would have had in the Great Pavilion.
