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.

|Thank you Neil for this beautiful part 4 of Chelsea . I loved all the wonderful plants in your photos, though I think some are a bit scary. Do they really eat rats? I hope there are a few left for dear Phoenix. I really look forwards to part 5. Take care.|
