Fascinating Facts About The RHS Chelsea Flower Show

by Bethany Day on May 12, 2014

With this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show just around the corner we thought we’d delve deep into the archives and reveal a few things you may not know about the world’s most prestigious flower show.

Did you know, for example…

  • The first RHS Chelsea Show was officially called ‘The Great Spring Show’, however the name ‘The Chelsea Flower Show’ quickly caught on.
  • In 1947, to help fill the space left by exhibitors still recovering from the War, a portion of the marquee was devoted to flower arrangements for the first time. Flower arranging became a regular feature. In 1956 it was allocated its own separate tent, known today as the Great Pavillion.
  • All the Show Gardens have been built from scratch in just 19 days and will be dismantled in only 5 days.
