100 Years of RHS Chelsea

[singlepic id=383 w=320 h=240 float=center]

Following our latest meeting, the theme for this year’s show has been decided as a celebration of 100 years of the great spring show, more commonly known as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Although originally created in 1862, the show lost its central London home in 1912, but the horticulturalist Sir Harry Veitch, who designed the gardens at Ascott House, Wing, organised it to be moved to the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea. Throughout its time, the central core of the show has been the floral exhibitions in the Great Pavilion but is best known for its myriads of show gardens and is now the central floral show of the Royal Horticultural Society.

As usual, there are a variety of classes that people can enter at our annual Flower and Produce Show in August. We will be producing a show programme soon that is delivered free to every home in the area and contains all the details that you need to enter all the different classes, so why not come along and have a go. After judging, the Village Hall becomes an exhibition of produce for all to come and see.
