SEPTEMBER 21 – 26TH 2021
The Chelsea Flower show may have been postponed in May this year, just like everything else, but the good, no, great news is that it has been re-scheduled for September this year. That is optimism personified, and by the looks of things, tickets are selling very fast.
Events are beginning to pick up again. England is opening up, perhaps to locals at present, but it sends a clear message that travel and tourism, events and festivals, are back in the dairy.
Prior to The Chelsea Flower show, will be the Hampton Court Flower Show.
There are times, I must confess, the Hampton Court Flower Show, or Garden Festival, is a personal, better choice. The venue is fabulous, at the famous Palace, built for Cardinal Wolsey in the Sixteenth century, taken by Henry VIII when the former fell out of favour. King Henry VIII brought all of his six wives to Hampton Court.
The grounds are worth seeing, and site specific too many film locations, the latest being Bridgerton.
So your planned visit will be made even more special. Visit the show, walk along the large pathways between unusual and legendary Yew trees, the sunken garden, all along the beautiful Thames. Getting there by car, or train is a easily done, or better still, stay in one of the lovely hotels close by.
Back to The Chelsea Flower Show. It promises to be so much more interesting this year. Few people understand how much preparation goes into the show, the meticulous planning by growers and landscapers to produce the ultimate flowers, just at the right time – and now, the date has been moved on, so what should we expect in the late summer season? Garden lovers will not be disappointed. For those truly immersed in all things gardening, your favourite garden designers will back.
PS. The pictures of the proteas you see, were actually taken at Chelsea a while ago.
If you are planning to visit the show, why not stay in London for a few days? There are many gardens and parks that will be at their best in September. Make it a Garden lover’s delight, immersing yourself in everything garden beautiful that London has to offer.
Hopefully, even some International Travel will be open to those who yearn to visit London. We continue to stay safe, take precautions, but equally, continue to dream of destinations and holidays.
Knowing that The Chelsea Flower Show, is happening this year, hold thumbs, is a great way to get in touch, and plan a brilliant trip.
And who knows, perhaps next year, we can help you plan the ultimate trip around some spectacular English Gardens, including The Chelsea Flower Show. One of our favourite itineraries.
