Although the first show, The Great Spring Show, goes back to 1862 it was not until 1913 that the show was moved to the Grounds of the Royal Hospital at Chelsea. It immediately took the name of Chelsea, and has been the Chelsea Flower Show ever since. It has always been an international show and with modern transportation anything is now possible at this amazing event. Join me on yet another march around Chelsea.

Cymbidium orchids are one of the more popular Orchid genera. They are quite often used for cut flowers, although some species and their hybrids do not cut well (i.e. Red Column Cymbidium (Cymbidium erythrostylum) and Tracy's Cymbidium (Cymbidium tracyanum)).
