Here’s what you MUST SEE at Chelsea Flower Show 2024

It’s Chelsea Flower Show week!! I’ve been so excited for this week to arrive and it is finally here. I look forward to Chelsea Flower Show every year, but this year is particularly exciting for me, as I’ve been asked to judge Chelsea in Bloom. This means wandering around beautiful Chelsea, admiring all of the incredible floral displays that many of the shops throughout Chelsea create, and deciding which ones are the best. Apart from judging, I cannot wait to explore more of the incredible gardens and stalls here at the flower show, so read on for what you must see here at Chelsea Flower Show 2024.


Come along to Chelsea Flower Show

If you’ve not yet bought tickets to The Chelsea Flower Show, do not fear – at the time of writing, there are still tickets available for Friday 24th May. If you’d like to come, do not delay as these tickets could be gone within a matter of hours. The entry price may be on the expensive side, however there are so many incredible things at Chelsea to see and experience, and so if you’re into gardens and gardening, you’ve got to attend the flower show at least once in your life!

Of course the show gardens are the main focus of Chelsea Flower Show. There are dozens of entrants including show-stopping gardens by Boodles, The National Garden Scheme and Children with Cancer UK. There are balcony gardens, sanctuary gardens, container gardens and larger show gardens. Charlie and I adore walking around these gardens as we get sooo much inspiration for additions we can make within our own garden. Another fantastic aspect of Chelsea Flower Show is being able to see the incredible garden structures, from greenhouses to sculptures. Despite not being in the market for a new greenhouse, I love nothing more than admiring luxurious glasshouses by brands such as Alitex and Hartley Botanic.

The flower show is sponsored by The Newt in Somerset; one of our favourite hotels of all time, so the food available at Chelsea is of a very high standard. There are also food offerings from The Ranelagh restaurant and some lovely cafes. If you’d like something extra fabulous, you can have a champagne afternoon tea supplied by The Dorchester!






Highgrove is the stunning Cotswold residence of King Charles which is located near Tetbury. The King has a shop in Tetbury where he sells beautiful gardening products, homemade jams, soaps, candles and more, with many of the products containing ingredients grown on the Highgrove estate. Luckily for us, Highgrove has come to Chelsea, meaning you can stock up on your Highgrove favourites and royal memorabilia!


Emma Bridgewater

There is also a wonderful Emma Bridgewater stall here at the flower show, stocking her famous pottery designs which are handcrafted in Stoke-on-Trent. Excitingly, Emma Bridgewater has collaborated with David Austin, releasing a line of pottery inspired by David Austin roses. This gorgeous mug is firmly on my wishlist. Be sure to also check out the main Pavillion, where you can view the newest variety of David Austin rose; the Emma Bridgewater rose! It is a stunning pink shrub rose and I am rather tempted to add it to our cut flower garden at home.




Sophie Allport

Sophie Allport is a small business based here in the UK which produces homeware with the most gorgeous countryside-inspired prints and patterns. We have many Sophie Allport pieces within our home, including Aga covers, tea towels and oven gloves. Sophie Allport also sells beautiful dog beds, mugs and bed linen! If you come across their stall here at Chelsea, be sure to pick up a piece or two from their new Chelsea Flower Show collection, which features an illustration of a gorgeous wooden greenhouse and a wheelbarrow full of blooms within the design.


Claverton Cloches

Claverton Cloches is another small British business that Charlie and I adore. It was started by a lady who was searching for beautiful Victorian glass Cloches to place on her terrace garden in Bath, and couldn’t find anyone making them. She took matters into her own hands (quite literally), and started making them herself. With absolutely no experience in glazing, she began to make Victorian inspired cloches out of metal and glass, based on some antique cloches she had collected. Her products are true heirloom pieces; made from high quality materials with such care, these cloches could remain in your garden for a hundred years or more!





Welligogs is a wonderful country fashion brand which I came across after moving to The Cotswolds. Welligogs are best known for their Sloane waterproof boots, which can be used in place of wellies when you want to look a little more put together. They are therefore, the perfect thing to wear for a muddy walk that will end with a meal in a country pub. Welligogs also produce wax jackets which are simply gorgeous, as well as gilets, dresses, hats, and even dog collars.


Sarah Raven

Sarah Raven is famous within the gardening world for selecting new varieties of dahlia and tulip, and also for her well-stocked online shop; from which you can purchase plants, seeds and tasteful homeware. This year, Sarah Raven has a wonderful stall at The Chelsea Flower Show, which she is running from within a little shed surrounded by borders of beautiful flowers. Sarah Raven, along with her friend and colleague Arthur Parkinson have chosen a selection of products to sell from the shed which can easily be carried around the flower show. Their products are perfect for gifting, or for treating yourself, so be sure to pop along to have a look.



Flower Show Fashion

Choosing outfits for Chelsea Flower Show is such a joy, as we usually have lovely sunny weather, and I get to wear my favourite spring / summer dresses! Hobbs is a brilliant place to look for spring / summer occasionwear, and their newest collection does not dissapoint. I’m loving this blue floral dress which is made of 100% silk and will allow you to effortlessly blend in with the florals at the flower show. The dress pairs perfectly with these Hobbs slingbacks in shade buttercream. This outfit could be elevated further with this Etro raffia sunhat which you can purchase on Net-a-Porter.


Speaking of Net-a-Porter, that is another great place to look for Chelsea Flower Show looks! What could be more perfect for the flower show than a floral Zimmermann dress, such as the Halliday linen midi dress. Or, if you’d prefer something without sleeves, you could go for this strappy version. I just love the scalloped edges and the corset detail at the back.


Bag wise, my top picks are this fun lemon detail raffia tote by Aquazzura, which is a great size for carrying around everything you need for a full day at the show, but is also super fun and summery. I’m also loving the collaboration between LOEWE and Paula’s Ibiza. This raffia tote bag in army green would be an extremely chic choice.
