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 between 19 and 23 May in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Tickets for the 2020 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. For RHS members, you can purchase tickets from £31.75, while non-members can purchase tickets from £39.75.

If you don't make it down in person, you can watch all of the action from the comfort of your home.

Chelsea Flower Show 2020: What can I expect?

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.

Last year’s winner of the best Show Garden was The M&G garden, designed by Andy Sturgeon.

The 2020 garden for M&G will be designed by Hugo Bugg and Charlotte Harris and will be a communal residential garden focusing on the challenges of creating green spaces in the middle of growing cities.

With sustainability a key issue at present, The M&G garden will feature repurposed materials and plants that can survive climate difficulties.
