Show highlights for Chelsea's centenary celebrations
This year's Chelsea promises to be an extra-special event celebrating 100 years in style
Join us for a spectacular gardening celebration as the iconic RHS Chelsea Flower Show reaches its 100th anniversary at the Royal Hospital. See this year's exciting line-up to ensure you a memorable show experience.
We have 15 spectacular Show Gardens, 11 Fresh Gardens demonstrating the best of contemporary garden design – and eight Artisan Gardens. In addition, 150 exhibits from nurseries and florists in the Great Pavilion and up to 250 trade stands means the centenary RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be one not to miss.
Spectacular Floral Pavilion
You’ll find magnificent displays showcasing today’s most exciting plants, alongside some of the favourites of 1913. Three of this year’s exhibitors have been at every show!
The Evolving Garden
The new theme for the RHS Environment area of the Great Pavilion shows how the big environmental issues have affected our gardens past, present and future.
Always the big crowd pullers, this year’s 15 gardens blend a century of achievement with today’s most innovative design thinking. Inspiring, challenging and totally enthralling, you’ll find themes from urban living to health, regeneration and the threats to British trees.
See what happens when top designers set their imaginations free. Outlandish, outrageous, colourful and controversial, these 11 gardens are guaranteed to fascinate.
Packing craft, skill and beauty into such small spaces, marvel at this year's eight imaginative and delightful plots.
This year’s Generation Gardens will highlight the changes to gardens and gardening over the last 100 years, and a special RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Centenary will be decided by a public vote.
Revisit 'London 2012'
Other exhibits to look out for this year include Delancey’s East Village, a garden modelled on London’s Olympic Park. Prince Harry’s charity, Sentebale, is exhibiting for the first time in collaboration with B&Q.
The Artisan Retreats will also return for a second year to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Here visitors can relax among beautiful summerhouses decorated by top UK designers and artists, including Wayne Hemmingway, Cath Kidston and Rob Ryan.
Talk to the experts
You’ll find lots of opportunities to get advice that really counts from RHS and other specialists throughout the show.
100 years in pictures

Celebrate with opera
A concert, hosted with Opera Holland Park, will be held on the Friday evening as part of the centenary celebrations, and visitors to the show will be able to take a walk through the show’s history, with photographic displays from the archives of the RHS Lindley Library.
Be sure to catch all the excitement from this celebratory show with outstanding food, drink and music. We’re only 100 once, so let's celebrate in style.
