The end of a spectacular RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2011

by Charlotte.Barnes on June 1, 2011

This year at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show we’ve seen all sorts of exciting gardens, floral displays and loads of celebrities.

It was a wonderful show and David Denyer’s gold medal win for ‘A Sense of Perspective’ – an exhibit consisting of nine 7-foot doorways, all decorated with different flowers – made it just a little bit sweeter.

There were also many well-known faces to be seen at the show. We managed to spot Gwyneth Paltrow, Dame Helen Mirren, Bill Bailey, Barbara Windsor and more! Take a look at our celebrity spotting post to see all the pictures.

As always, the gardens were the real stars of the show, though. One of the most interesting was Diarmud Gavin’s ‘Hanging Gardens of Chelsea’ – a 16 metre long planted pod suspended by a large crane high above the ‘Irish Sky Garden’. The ‘Best in Show’ garden was the Daily Telegraph entry, designed by Cleve West.

The finals of the RHS Young Florist of the Year also took place at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The entrants had to design a jockey’s silk shirt. The results were fabulous and it was a unique chance to see a real horse in the Great Pavilion! Several Interflora florists were among the medal winners.

Something new for this year’s show were the Artisan Gardens. ‘A Postcard from Wales’ was really beautiful and had a dilapidated boathouse, shell path and a fence made out of beachcombing finds.

As always, another delightful show and we can’t wait until next year!

With Father’s Day just around the corner, why not take look at our fabulous range of Fathers Day gifts?
