The RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018


If you follow me on instagram it shouldn't have escaped your knowledge that I love flowers and plants... my flat is a little forest and it's fair to say that floristry is more than just a hobby of mine.

I've been looking forward to the show for months and months. On Friday the day finally arrived! We had an all day ticket so made our way to Sloane Square after rush hour to spend the day there.

The M&G show garden - loved the rammed earth structures with the wild planting

We made our way around the Space to Grow gardens, then made our way into the pavilion. I was in absolute awe, I honestly didn't know where to look! So much beauty everywhere! The lupins, peonies and alliums were rather lovely.

Beautiful peonies

I love these lupins, like a sunset. If you've never watched a bee get pollen from a lupin you need to find a way to do that immediately! 

Pretty puffball alliums - who would believe they're from the onion family!

Fun fact: cafe au lait dahlia's are my favourite flower

My dream is to one day have a flower farm so it was absolutely wonderful for inspiration! Still waiting on an allotment for now though...

New dream: a show garden at the Chelsea Flower show. You make your mind up as to which is more realistic... one can dream though eh?

I'm a sucker for an aged terracotta pot 

Hello dream garden 

Cheeky tropicals in the grand pavilion 

Someone let me at their vintage van to attempt this please?

After a wander around the smaller gardens and the pavilion we made our way to the show gardens and WOW! They were absolutely unbelievable! I just need a garden right now!!

This had to be one of my favourites! So wild and beautiful. Although we bumped into the designer and he said it would be a very high maintenance garden to have at home (as if any wouldn't be..)

The people's choice show garden, another favourite of mine too!

Oh and as if the beautiful gardens, stunning floral displays and scrummy food wasn't enough? We only went and saw Monty Don in real life! I mean... need I say any more... I just wish Nigel could have been there too.

Oh Monty

I had an absolutely wonderful day, I couldn't recommend it highly enough for an absolutely joyful day out!

If you're into flowers, give my new floral instragram account a cheeky follow: @thepetalemporium for all the blooms and floral inspo! 


Pretty sure I wasn't allowed to do this but lol, yolo!
