I am sure just about everyone knows about the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, don’t we? We’re lucky to have it broadcast on the BBC each year, and we can sit back and soak up the plants, gardens and the atmosphere, without getting muddled up in the crowds.
So which other flower shows are out there, and are they quieter, more accessible and cheaper to enter than the London-based Chelsea show?
I’ve had a lot of fun putting together this list of 5 lesser-known shows, all of which are well worth the trip. I’ve chosen them from every corner of the UK, so hopefully you’ll be able to give one of them a visit.
