Product Description


'stunningly illustrated book ... packed with wonderful photographs of displays past and present that will have you reaching for your dibber.'

(Daily Mail)

'authoritative and evocatively illustrated book... equally compelling is the charting of the cavalcade of social and cultural influences that have shaped the show. Chelsea may be 100, but she is not in her dotage, and, one hopes, will long continue to surprise and delight.’

(House & Garden)

'The text crackles with his customary wry wit, and is peppered with glorious nuggets ... the illustrations are especially rich.'

(Gardens Illustrated)

'there is no better person to research and write the history of the Chelsea Flower Show than Brent Elliott ..."

(Garden Design Journal)

“the essential souvenir of a show that has reflected and shaped tastes in garden design and planting for the past 100 years …. the chronological chapters provide a fascinating journey from the early shows to present day.”

(The Garden)

“rich in anecdotes as well as history and is superbly illustrated”.

(The Lady)

'relive the glory of this year's centenary RHS Chelsea Flower Show'

(Living North)
