Tuesday and Wednesday at the show are open to RHS members only so generally a little quieter – however, the #BFA100 has proven to be a fabulous attraction to visitors, enjoying their own photo opportunities. 

Our 100 is situated next to all the floral kites of the RHS CHELSEA FLORIST OF THE YEAR COMPETITION, which is also a huge crowd pleaser – they are astonished at the imagination and incredible high standard of the work. The ‘CHELSEA FUTURE FLORIST 2017’ a competition for colleges and training providers who decorated the tuk tuks.

Our enormous gratitude goes to Jane Benefield and the amazing team that created our stand from Moreton Morrell College and our generous sponsors Eflorist, Opiflor and Florismart.
