Some of the fabulous show features at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016
From sculpture to floral displays, there was plenty to keep everyone busy at the show.
This glorious tribute to the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women was a labour of love for founders Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight. Culminating in Phillip Johnson's grand design, show goers saw the magnificent installation in front of the Royal Hospital.
In celebration of HM The Queen's 90th birthday, the RHS installed a magnificent floral arch at the Bull Ring Gate entrance to the show. Made with flowers donated by British growers, the arch was designed by leading floral designer Shane Connolly and installed with the help of students from UK floristry colleges. A second floral arch adorned the London Gate.
The photographic exhibition celebrated Her Majesty The Queen's regular visits to the Chelsea Flower Show. Visitors saw how the show has changed over the years.
Patrick Hurst's original piece of contemporary sculpture stood in front of the Royal Hospital building and created a mirrored exterior to camouflage the interior's true form - like a portal to another reality. Supported by Professional Assured Financial Services.
We had a makeover for 2016. A visit to our new oak barn and courtyard gave visitors the chance to find out more about our Greening Grey Britain campaign. In addition we had RHS gifts plus information about membership, science and gardening holidays.
Of course, celebrities were out in force at the show, and it was hard not to get swept up in their enthusiasm for all things green and glorious.
This year's Tunnel Installation celebrated the beauty of fresh roses. Walking through the tunnel invoked the romance and abundance of the British summer. After the show, the roses will be dried, to be incorporated into new artworks by designer Joseph Massie.
A key part of our Greening Grey Britain Campaign is about transforming paved-over front gardens into beautiful, planted areas. This year, you could join in with our Front Gardens Summit debate which streamed live on Tuesday 24 May.

If you enjoyed your trip to Chelsea Flower Show this year, then why not take a look at how you can take Chelsea home, and with our 2016 gardening theme of Health, Happiness and Horticulture, we showed just how and why gardening can make you feel so much better.
The RHS hosts a number of shows throughout the year, including next year's first RHS Chatsworth Flower Show. Discover all the shows.
