Chelsea Flower Show through the ages

Posted on 27 May 2016

In the next few days Chelsea will be transformed into a concentration of flowers. As every year, the Chelsea Flower Show is the perfect way to celebrate the transition into spring. Since 1912, the show has been the event that no flower enthusiast would miss. Previously called the Great Spring Show it is the most famous show in the UK attracting thousands of visitors every year. Today, it holds over 550 exhibitors and mixes traditions and modernity. In its honour, we have found some of the past years' photos of our favourite displays.
