Monday 02 Jan, 2017

The world's most famous flower show will take place in London's Chelsea in May - one of a range of events providing ample opportunity to admire Britain's beautiful blooms.

The Chelsea Flower Show has been running since 1913, and is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). It attracts some of the best international garden designers, who create innovative, themed show gardens for visitors to explore, as well as nurseries and flower clubs, who contribute glorious displays.

This year's show takes place between 23-27 May, but with demand for tickets very high why not try another of the RHS shows taking place around the country? The series starts in London on 14-15 February with an early spring plant fair, and continues through the year.

New for 2017 are flower shows at grand stately home Chatsworth, in Derbyshire, and Rosemoor, a RHS garden in north Devon.
