The RHS Chelsea Flower Show has just finished for 2019! This year we saw some amazing standouts with an emphasis on environmentalism and returning to nature amongst all exhibits. Here are a few of our favourites.
Bespoke Children's Playhouses
Wallgarden displayed bespoke children's playhouses at Chelsea – situated in a field of wildflowers. Masterminded by designer Nadine Charlton, these miniature houses invoke whimsy and old world charm - we love it!
The Donkeys Matter garden showcased The Donkey Sanctuary charity's international work on what it means to own a donkey in countries where access to clean water is not guaranteed. The garden won the People's Choice Award for Best Artisan Garden and had celebrity guests including Joanna Lumley posing with the furry pets.
Reuse and Recycle

Like we said, the focus on Chelsea this year was very much ecological and on the role sustainability in 2019. Chris Beardshaw's Morgan Stanly garden showcased how to minimise the environmental impact of a Chelsea plot by using an electric excavator and growing plants in recyclable taupe pots.
Save The Bees
This exhibition titled 'Through the Eyes of Bees' by The McQueens Flowers Per Oculus Apum was attention-grabbing in its theme and installation. The 20m long by 7m wide tunnel that focused on bee-friendly flowers in an upside-down lavender field.
