Chelsea Flower Show 2024

Highlights from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024

Hello, garden enthusiasts! I’m Mirela, the Senior Garden Designer here at House Designer, and I’m thrilled to share with you the highlights from this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show. 😊 As always, the show was a treasure trove of inspiration and innovation in garden design.

About the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, held annually in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, is one of the most prestigious and well-known flower and landscape garden shows in the world. Organised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), this event has been a fixture on the horticultural calendar since 1913. Each year, it brings together the best garden designers, nurseries, and horticulturalists from around the world to showcase their talents and innovations.

The show is a celebration of gardening excellence, featuring a myriad of exquisite gardens, stunning floral displays, and the latest trends in garden design. It’s a place where tradition meets innovation, and where gardeners and designers push the boundaries of what’s possible in outdoor spaces. For us at House Designer, the Chelsea Flower Show is a vital source of inspiration and a benchmark for the high standards we strive to achieve in our garden design projects.

This serene setup was an absolute delight. The water feature, surrounded by lush greenery and carefully placed planting scheme, created a calming oasis perfect for relaxation. The blend of natural and contemporary elements is a trend we’re seeing more of, and it’s something I’m excited to incorporate into our designs.

2. Modern Garden Retreat
