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.
The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden. Designer Tracy Foster.
Royal Bank of Canada Garden. Designer Charlotte Harris.
The Morgan Stanley Garden. Designer Chris Beardshaw.
Breaking Ground. Designers Andrew Wilson and Gavin McWilliam.
Silk Road Garden, Chengdu, China. Designers Laurie Chetwood and Patrick Collins.
Linklaters Garden for Maggie’s. Designer Darren Hawkes.
The standard of some of the Trade Stands often rivals that of the Show Gardens.

As always some superb nursery displays in the Great Pavilion. Three of the best Gold Medal displays.
