RHS Chelsea Flower Show for The English Garden magazine

May 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Monday 18 May was due to be press day at the 2020 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which I was going to be photographing for The English Garden magazine. I was looking forward to working with the team again, having worked with TEG at the event in 20172018 and 2019, but of course this year it was not to be.

Instead, this weekend I have been enjoying the latest issue of The English Garden, which celebrates Chelsea by looking back at show gone by, and includes an image I shot last year of Chris Beardshaw's show garden for Morgan Stanley.

There are also 2 free packs of seeds with the issue so that's an added bonus too!

The RHS are running lots of online events for a 'Virtual Chelsea Flower Show' this year, and The English Garden has a handy guide to it all on their website. It's well worth checking out their excellent website - particularly if you, like me, have ventured into gardening properly for the first time during lockdown. They have easy gardening jobs to do in May, advice on what vegetables to grown at home, ten plants you can grown indoors, and an incredibly useful guide on where to buy plants during lockdown. Although garden centres are now starting to re-open, it's a really great way to discover places you might not have known about before, too - there were quite a few nurseries near to me that I didn't know about previously and it's great to be able to support local businesses at this time.

Here are a few photographs from last year, but do check out The English Garden's blog to find out all the details about them, and for plenty of other garden inspiration.
 

Hopefully we'll be back there next year!
