Chelsea Flower Show north carolina interior design kathryn greeley speaks about collected library

One place that I have not been that is definitely on my gardening “bucket list” is the Chelsea Flower Show.  While on my trip to Memphis last week, I found this lovely and very informative book at a flower shop.  The Royal Horiticulture Society’s Chelsea Flower Show has been the annual event in the world of horticulture.  This book is basically the centenary souvenir, and an enduring look at what makes Chelsea special.  This book is a wealth of illustrations from the extensive RHS archives and includes photographs in color and black and white.  The book certainly conjures up the full Chelsea experience.

Held every May, the horticultural world descends on Chelsea for this event.  Honored and emulated around the world, this show has been the peak event of the British gardening world for generations.  I think it is interesting to note that the RHS cancelled the show for the years 1917 and 1918 at a time of wartime privation and also cancelled the show for the whole of the Second World War, staging it again only in 1947.

If you are a gardener, I would likely recommend this historical review of the show for your “collected library”!
