RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017

I have been visiting the Chelsea Flower Show for more than 30 years; what a great day out for gardeners.  Not as many Show Gardens as in previous years, but the usual mix of magnificent and controversial!

The M & G Garden,  inspired by an abandoned Maltese quarry. Designer James Basson.

Awarded a Gold Medal and Best Show Garden, but…..

The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden.  Designer Tracy Foster.

One of my favourite Show Gardens this year.

Another of my favourites.

The Morgan Stanley Garden.  Designer Chris Beardshaw.

Great planting.

Breaking Ground.  Designers Andrew Wilson and Gavin McWilliam.

The standard of some of the Trade Stands often rivals that of the Show Gardens.
