GLADE IN CHELSEA

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape -

It may be the grand­est dame of gar­den fêtes, but the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is far from old-fash­ioned. As well as the show­case of species in the Grand Pavil­ion and seed-sell­ing stalls, there are in­spired ideas for next-gen­er­a­tion grow­ers. We’re look­ing for­ward to Plants Work, a home of­fice set cre­ated by Ikea and In­door Gar­den De­sign to demon­strate the health and pro­duc­tiv­ity ben­e­fits of plants.

Else­where, con­tem­po­rary Bri­tish land­scape de­signer Sarah Price’s Mediter­ranean-in­spired show gar­den ( left), a haven of pome­gran­ate trees and the first pink-petalled Lager­stroemia in­dica (com­monly known as crepe myr­tle) ever to be shown at Chelsea, is a real treat of colour and scent. Be sure to stop for an af­ter­noon cup of Dar­jeel­ing in Wedg­wood’s el­e­gant Tea Con­ser­va­tory, open from 4pm (22–26 May; rhs.org.uk).
