It is notoriously difficult to get tickets for the Chelsea Flower Show, and so anyone I mentioned it to asked how EJ and I had managed to get our hands on a couple. Simple, we’d booked months ago, and chosen an evening session! Nothing else to it. We booked tickets that allowed us entry from 5.30-8 on a Thursday evening for just under £30, although I have heard for day tickets selling for up to £500 due to the events popularity- helped this year by Prince Harry’s garden!
We were incredibly lucky with the weather, having suffered from rain in London during the week, our evening was sunny and dry, if a little cold.
The event was pretty busy, with large crowds around Royal Hospital Gardens, but many seemed to be leaving when we arrived. We made a quick pit stop at the Pimms tent before wandering around the show. First Pimms of the summer!
Taking advantage of the gorgeous evening, we walked around the show gardens outside first. One of my favourites was the Daily Telegraph Garden, that reminded us of wild fields and hedgerows.
