More images of The Chelsea Flower Show 2006




Category: Eplants Garden Shows Festivals | Posted: Tue Jan 23, 2007 8:22 am


This was one of the uploaded images, it shows a view of the retail area.

Another bus.

This was a section where they had items on show. I think these were shade sails but all messed up.


This is another view of that Australian Garden, its pretty cool, every persons dream garden.



The cancer foundation garden


This is the Da vinci garden. Remember the movie.


At the show were a line of show gardens, to get lots of people to see them, they created 2 lines for the public to follow. A slow line and a fast line. This view is of the start of the line. The next image is showing both fast and slow lines. The fast line is on the scaffold and raised. The slow line allowed people to see the gardens up close, but slowly.



I thought this sign was really cool.


This looks like party time.


This is the New Zealand garden. It really does look like a beach garden from home. Black sand grasses, trees and bush and lots of space.

This shows the bottom corner of the Kiwi garden. Over the path is a RHS stand. These people were very helpful so I have joined up.

I couldn't resist getting a picture of this tee shirt.



David Austin Roses. Each and everyone just perfect.
Below is the bed of roses.




This gent is one of the residents at the Chelsea Hospital. The Chelsea Flower Show is the Annual fundraiser for the Hospital.

This is another view of Mr Austins Roses. it also shows some of the hoses that were around the show.
For weeks prior to the show, they had no rain, suddenly on opening day the heavens opened.
I visited the show on Thursday and Friday and the ground in parts was like a bog. Plastic grating an bark mulch had been laid out to help people stop sinking.


Back inside the big marque were lots of different flowers were in display.
And fantastic gardens. Like this one.


More soon, i have found some of the floral arrangements. Great ideas for those who like that sort of thing.
Thanks for the comments and encouragement.

Thanks so much for taking the time to post these photos Eplants, it gives us an opportunity to see a show that we are probably never likely to visit. I really liked the Da Vinci garden and of course the David Austin Roses, how could anyone not like those :D

Now that's the way to see the Chelsea Flower Show without having to get squashed or rained on.

Typical isn't it that it should start raining on heavily on opening day - that's British weather for you!!!

The Da Vinci garden is a favourite of mine too and also the New Zealand one but, sorry, the Australian garden isn't my idea of a dream garden I'm afraid. I like lots of planting not concrete. The New Zealand one has the balance right in my opinion. Did it win a medal?

The last photograph is lovely and even someone with limited space could accomodate a feature like that into their outdoor space I'm sure. Thanks for letting us wander around the show through your pictures. Roll on the next batch!!!!

Thanks for the garden show tour Eplants.
I have never seen The Da Vinci Code but I really like the colors in that one, especially the Iris' standing in front. Iris' are my favorites.
