Chelsea Flower Show

Submitted by on March 30, 2012 – 12:46 amNo Comment

This is the big one, Road Trips Gardeners, and it’s never to early to make plans to head to London for the Chelsea Flower Show.

This year, the show is May 22 through 26, 2012, at Royal Hospital, Chelsea, London, England (map). As usual, it’s sponsored by the Royal Horticultural Society.
