It's our fourth year at Chelsea and we're celebrating with
our Spirit of Summer stand – a carnival of colour that
showcases the best of blooms from around the world
After winning gold in 2015, we're excited to be back. Showcasing and celebrating floral and cultural diversity, our 2016 display features blooms from around the globe, from African roses and South American gerberas to British tulips. As well as being bright and beautiful, the garden is also designed to help educate visitors on the importance of flower production for economies around the world.
It took time, travel and a lot of determination to create this year's stand. Discover our Chelsea story by watching the video on how we made our eye catching Spirit of Summer exhibit.
Give your home or loved one a slice of our Spirit of Summer sunshine with our bespoke Chelsea Flower Show bouquet
Expect bold hues and dramatic displays at our stand this year. We've travelled the world to show off our very own best in show blooms and split them into four colourful quadrants. Visit the UK quarter to see vivid tulips and potted begonias, travel to the South American quarter for cut roses and chrysanthemums, or take a trip to the African and European sections to see carnations, gerberas and hydrangeas.
Our vibrant stand has an international flavour this year, courtesy of the array of blooms from every corner of the globe that were used to craft it. Find out more about our exceptional growers.
From zingy yellow to cerise pink, these brightly coloured gerberas are grown by our specialist grower, Elite Flowers, on the equator in Colombia.
Our Spirit of Summer display also features a stunning array of orchid from Double H Nurseries in Hampshire, who have been growing these delicate flowers in the UK since 2003.
Mix, match and create your very own Spirit of Summer colour scheme at home with our brand new summer bouquets and arrangements and our range of all-year-round flowers and plants.
