RHS Chelsea Flower Show Opens Today

From today until May 23, lucky Londoners can wander among thousands of blooms on the grounds of the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, where the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is taking place. Arguably the world's most famous flower show, it showcases horticultural trends, products, and most important, simply beautiful flowers.

This year, you can check out innovative garden designs, including several Credit Crunch gardens. While I'd definitely want to check out these penny-pinching designs, I'm most interested in the Urban Gardens showcase. These gardens feature designs that are perfect for small urban spaces, including front gardens and roof gardens. I'm also pretty intrigued by the funky, kitschy touches used in the Second Nature Garden.
