Chelsea In Bloom Is Back With A Magnificent Maritime Theme

Chelsea in Bloom

Chelsea in Bloom means West London gets a dose of floral fever.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show may be a ticketed affair, but there’s another way to eyeball some beautiful blossoms. Get thyself to Chelsea, where the whole neighbourhood is bursting out in colour as part of Chelsea in Bloom, running until May 25th. With 2019’s theme being ‘Under the Sea’, the new fleet of underwater-inspired floral creations are certainly putting the ‘sea’ in Chelsea…

1. There’s an early contender for star of the show…
