After its autumnal diversion last year, the Chelsea Flower Show is back to normal this year, and tickets are now on sale for the May floral extravaganza.

The show is also primarily outdoors, which helps with the current situation.

The flower show runs from 24th-28th May, but note that the first two days are for members of the RHS only, so the rest of the public have three days — Thur 26th May to Sat 28th May to attend.

It’s not a cheap show – as tickets cost £85.85 per person – and can be bought here. There’s also a show guide with map, for an extra £12.25.

However, if you want to buy plants, then book tickets for the last day, Saturday, because at 4pm a ceremonial bell is rung and the plant sell-off begins. It’s 90 minutes of pandemonium as normally prim and proper ladies scramble to get the best plants.

You can bag a great plant for a bargain – bring big strong bags.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
