The Chelsea Flower Show is one of the most important dates in the calendars of green-fingered Brits, as the Royal Horticultural Society puts on a splendid display of gardens in the heart of London.

This year, the world-renowned show will take place in September, instead of May, between 21 and 26 in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Tickets for the 2021 show are currently on sale and range in price depending on what day you choose to go, if you choose a package offer, and if you are an RHS member or not.

Chelsea Flower Show tickets are available to buy on the RHS website.

At the moment, the BBC hasn't shared scheduling information this far in advance of the event, however previous years give us an indication of what it is likely to be like.

In the past, twice-daily coverage has aired on BBC Two, going over the standout moments and winners from each day in two broadcasts in the late afternoon and evening.

Keep an eye on this page for information about the exact schedule and watch this space as we'll update this page when we have more news.

When the show has kicked off, you can also keep up with all the action on social media using the #RHSChelsea hashtag.

What can I expect from this year's event?

The 2020 event was unable to take place as planned, as was the show planned for May this year.

Instead, we were treated to the brand new Virtual Chelsea Flower Show for two years running, as well as to the promise that the in-person show would return this Autumn.

This September, it seems as though things will be largely back to the usual order of events, but with additional health and safety measures in place. The event will also run for one extra day, six instead of five, for the first time.

The show is divided up into sections including the Show Gardens, the Artisan Gardens which showcase modest-sized gardens using special materials and the Urban Gardens, a category which focuses on smaller spaces.

There will be a wide range of impressive showcases, opportunities to buy all the best gardening products and plenty of experts and special guests.
