Everything for the Gardener and their Garden

Chelsea Flower Show to be a stunner!

Monday, May 24th, 2010

There’ve been glimpses of some of the gardens on the news today – and the garden with giant locks looks quite amazing. It’s been created by Leeds Council and you can see more about the garden here at Leeds at Chelsea.

There are lots of photos of the amazing lock gates and a list of the plants they’ve used! There’s a webcam of the garden too – which shows it from a great angle!

For people who love lock gate gardens there is this garden from 2003 – The Lock Keeper’s Cottage

Chelsea is sold out but there are other amazing flower shows available at Royal Horticultural Society
