Looking Forward to Chelsea

By Ryansgarden @ryansgarden
Looking forward to Chelsea Next week we see the unveiling of the Chelsea Flower Show, the cherry on the top of the RHS cake.  All the great and the good will be displaying their wares, wandering around the site casting a beady eye on what’s on show and celebrating the big event.
As a first timer to the show I really have no idea of what to expect.  Of course, I’ve seen Chelsea on the TV many a time and visited other shows but a show of this scale and prestige really is a different beast.
I’m particularly excited to see the show gardens and I'm eager to get some good design ideas.  I’m hoping to see something new and exciting that will get the cogs turning and possibly initiate some action on my part.  The Fresh Show Garden category sounds like this could just be the ticket although every garden has potential to wow.  Little has happened in my garden or at the allotment since I last posted as work really has dominated my days but I have a feeling that with a newfound motivation things are about to change.
I'm hoping that the Great Pavillion will also inspire and that I'll be able to find some new plants and dual purpose plants that are both decorative and edible.  I'll also be looking to see what's new and get a few tips from the growers.
Here's to Chelsea 2012!
