1 ~~~ The World's Most Famous Flower Show Will Be Going Completely Virtual for the First Time This Year
Though the in-person event was canceled, you can learn from award-winning, RHS-acclaimed experts from home this year.
For the first time since it was established in 1913, the most famous garden show in the world, the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show, is going completely virtual. Normally, just over 150,000 people visit the flower show each year (attendance is limited because of the size of the grounds where the show takes place, and you have to buy tickets in advance, usually starting at $50). But this year, because of social distancing guidelines due to the new coronavirus that canceled the usual show, it’s moving completely online. The virtual show kicked off on Monday, May 18, with a day just for RHS members, but the rest of the show, from May 19 through May 23, is free and open to everyone.
