Best gardening event in the world – RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) revealed  details of 24 confirmed Gardens, including nine Show Gardens, nine Artisan Gardens, five Fresh Gardens, the RHS Greening Grey Britain Garden, and more than 100 floral displays, which will make up the 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Nick Mattingley, RHS Director of Shows, says: “As with every RHS Chelsea Flower Show for more than a century, designers, nurserymen and leading lights of the horticultural world are pulling out all the stops to make this the best gardening event in the world.
 “As well as having some very exciting Fresh Gardens at the show,” said Nick, “we also have a record number of Artisan Gardens this year which are bigger than ever before.”
In the Show Garden category, James Basson will be going for his third consecutive RHS Gold medal with a re-creation of the stunning Maltese landscape for M&G. Laurie Chetwood and Patrick Collins are teaming up for the third time at RHS Chelsea with The Chengdu Silk Road Garden which combines architecture and planting in a conceptual East-West landscape with a dramatic ‘Silk Road’ bridge linking the different elements of the garden. Lee Bestall is celebrating 500 Years of Covent Garden, while Andrew Wilson and Gavin McWilliam aim to highlight endangered heathland for Wellington College. Chris Beardshaw is going for his 12th RHS Gold medal and is working with the National Youth Orchestra, which will compose a piece of music inspired by the garden.
