This year, there's lots of coverage on the BBC, with coverage kicking off on Sunday 19 September at 6pm with a preview.

In the days thereafter, BBC1 and BBC2 have lots of coverage on each day at 3:45 and then:

  • Monday (7:00 on BBC2, 7:30 on BBC1) 
  • Tuesday (7:00 on BBC2)
  • Wednesday (7:00 on BBC1, and 8:00 on BBC2)
  • Thursday (7:00 on BBC2)
  • Friday (7:30 on BBC1 and 8:30 on BBC2)
  • Saturday (7:00 on BBC2)

Show gardens have been inspired by the famous nurse Florence Nightingale and also Psalm 23.  There are gardens to help tackle climate change, a nursery showing a whole new collection of plants and a school, where the students prove the value of houseplants.  Six House Plant Studios will give you plenty of inspiration for making your home greener!  For example, why not create your own forest at home?!

There are container gardens, balcony gardens, artisan gardens, show gardens, feature gardens and sanctuary gardens to enjoy and take inspiration from.   There's nothing like strolling through and enjoy the work of other people and then going home with your head full of ideas and plans.   

Chelsea's Great Pavilion will be ablaze with glorious colour,  and there's an Italian-style piazza surrounding the monument with enormous olive trees, cypress and handmade terracotta pots to add to the Mediterranean flavour.  So you'll see some rare and unusual produce not normally found at RHS Chelsea.
