2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show Chengdu Silk Road Garden

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, formally known as the Great Spring Show, is a garden show held for five days in May by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in Chelsea, London. Held at Chelsea since 1912, it is the world’s most prestigious flower show that inspires millions through showcasing the best in garden design in the United Kingdom, and perhaps in the world, attracting visitors from all continents. Several members of the British Royal Family attend a preview of the show, as part of the royal patronage of the RHS. This years’ show started on May 23rd.

Sponsored by Creativersal, the Chengdu Silk Road Garden is architect Laurie Chetwood and garden designer Patrick Collins' fourth show garden at Chelsea. At the heart of the garden the circular symbol of the 3,000 year old Sun and Immortal Bird legend, which is the logo of Chengdu City and Chinese Cultural Heritage, lies on a central theatrical ‘plaza’. From this colourful centrepiece a strong linear ‘Silk Road’ path – with silk woven along its route – runs the length of the garden, representing historic and current East-West collaboration, and referencing the Su-Embroidery masters of Chengdu.
