Popular Flower Types
From beginner plants to varieties for the pros, here are some of the best flowers you can grow at home.
Tulips are the quintessential spring blooming flower, offering a broad spectrum of colors and graceful elegance.
Narcissus offer cheerful blooms that herald spring and extend into fall. Look for hardy ‘Yellow Trumpet’ narcissus and ‘Artist Blue’ with soft violet-blue flowers.
The world’s greatest gardening event will this year commemorate the life of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who rarely missed her annual visit to RHS Chelsea during her 70-year reign, while also celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.
A tranquil garden filled with some of the Windsor family’s favourite plants, a life-size topiary display of Queen Elizabeth II’s pony Emma and a display of roses celebrating the Coronation are among royal tributes at this year’s show. Other themes include edible and drought-resistant plants, both popular choices for designers this year, with more than half the perennials in the Show Garden category being heat resilient.
Considered to be the pinnacle of horticultural and floral design, The RHS Chelsea Flower Show has been held for more than a century. It attracts a global crowd every year, and is the destination to see cutting-edge garden designs and draw inspiration for home gardens.
