Chelsea in Bloom

Shop floral display

Chelsea in Bloom

One of the often missed experiences of visiting the Chelsea Flower Show is the Chelsea in Bloom floral art competition. For many people who visit the Show they overlook this event, but we hope to introduce you to the many wonderful floral sights in Sloane Square and the immediate vicinity during the world-famous gardening show.

Beautiful floral displays

Chelsea in Bloom is a stunning floral extravaganza. During The Chelsea Flower Show, the streets around Chelsea are transformed by superb floral displays. With more and more shops, restaurants and hotels taking part, this event is going from strength to strength since beginning 13 years ago.

Shop floral displays

Each year a theme is chosen. Last year was ‘Floral Safari’, which saw many wonderful displays based on animals and their environment. This year’s theme is ‘Summer of Love’ which is inspired by the Royal Wedding and the cultural revolution of the 1960’s/70’s.

Stunning floral displays in shop fronts

Each retailer taking part will design their floral displays with their own individual interpretation of this theme. A panel of expert judges will vote for the ‘Best Floral Display’ based on creativity, use of fresh flowers and displays that compliment the theme. As well as the award given for ‘Best Floral Display’ there are awards of ‘Highly Commended’ and ‘Innovation.’ There is also a ‘People’s Champions Award’ which is voted for by visitors to the area.
