Wow, what a great opportunity to see some fantastic plants and displays, and then on top of it you can buy them too??
I've always wondered why English nurseries and gardens have unusual plants that can't be found in the US, I wonder if some of the plants started at Chelsea?
THANK YOU Neil, for sharing your wonderful stories and photos with us, BRILLIANT as usual!

Dear Susan, thank you for your kind comments! My feet ache, and my arms are stiff carrying the camera and equipment around. 1380 pictures that needed sorted and finally after lots of computer work My first Article was done. Now doing the second one.
I think you might like part 2! A lot of plants are shown at Chelsea for the first time and then go onto Nurseries etc.
A Nepenthes for you.
Regards.
Neil.

Thank you Neil. The golden lily with orange would make a spectacular cut flower in my home. Too bad no name showing. I think I need at least 11 Big Grin
