The World’s Most Prestigious Flower Show – January 9, 2018

The Jan 9th meeting promises to provide a welcome break from the winter doldrums. Come join us for a tour of the Chelsea Garden Show guided by our very own club member, Brian Dodds. He will tour us through show stopping gardens, the introduction of new plants, revised old favorites and cutting edge garden design trends. The Floral Marque is the centre piece of gardens designed by leading names in the Horticulture world.

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) organizes the Chelsea Garden Show that was known as The Great Spring Show prior to 1913. It is the most famous flower and garden show in the United Kingdom and perhaps the world attracting garden enthusiasts from around the globe. Tickets have to be pre-sold for the 11-acre display. BBC extensively covers this show and if you want a sneak preview, it can be viewed on YouTube.

Our thanks go out to Brian Dodds for sharing this wonderful trip with our club.
