This year the event is returning between the 21-25 May for its wonderful floral extravaganza. With its return, we will see annual Show and Sanctuary gardens, as well as competitions among balcony and container gardens, as well as Plant of the Year and Floristry and Floral Design competitions.

However, a garden that will be spotlighted this year is the No Adults Allowed Garden. This breathtaking design has for the first time in history been designed by children from Sulivan Primary School in London. The RHS invited pupils from the school to work alongside designer Harry Holding and together they created the brief and design for the garden.

The main Chelsea Flower Show trends this year according to the garden designers will be climate change and dealing with its effects, including the need to use water more wisely. It will also have lots of gardens focused around healing and nurturing and friendship and community.

Not to forget if you're a Bridgerton fan, there will also be an exclusive Bridgerton themed garden there this year, which has been designed by first-time Chelsea designer Holly Johnston, in collaboration with Netflix.
