Chelsea Flower Show – 19th – 23rd May

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better”

Albert Einstein

With the Chelsea Flower Show on the horizon, it’s a good idea to revisit this beautiful British horticultural extravaganza and look at its history. How did the Chelsea Flower Show come to be?

The Chelsea Flower Show started out with a different name, with the rather long title of The Royal Horticultural Society’s Great Spring Show. This was held for the first time in 1862 in Kensington. In 1913 the flower shower changed location to the Chelsea General Hospital.

Naturally, the wars took their toll and the Second World War saw the closure of the show while it was used by the War Office. It started up again in 1947.

My uncle, a member of the Royal Academy
of Arts, encouraged me from an early age to be
fascinated in art, antiques and design
My love of antiques is about history,
makers and their evolution over the ages.
I hope you will enjoy exploring our website.
