For one week, over 70 shops, restaurants, and hotels around Chelsea will be putting on their floral best as part of the annual Chelsea in Bloom competition.

Each year has a theme, and this year is “Extraordinary Voyages”, which is something that few people have had over the past year of the pandemic.

Displays inspired by wanderlust, the golden age of travel, and Phileas Fogg’s ’80 Days around the World’ will span the neighbourhood and central installations can be founded at various spots across the area.

A map guide to the venues decorating their buildings will be here shortly.

The floral displays are also a competition, and apart from the judge’s prizes, there’s a public vote which can be done on their website.

The Chelsea in Bloom festival runs from Monday 20th Sept to Saturday 25th Sept.

There is also the RHS Botanical Art and Photography Show taking place at the same time at the Saatchi Gallery.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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 your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
