39 Ways To Nail The Spirit Of Chelsea Flower Show At Home

Festoon your house and your person with floral loveliness to honour the spirit of Chelsea Flower Show.

Chelsea Flower Show, through whose doors the horticultural cognoscenti would have been pouring right now, is on ice for this year – and with it, bang goes our annual chance to rub shoulders with royalty. Sigh. Yet that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the spirit of this most civilised and pretty of festivals home. Here we bring you our floral tribute to Chelsea via an edit of flower-inspired products. Grab a glass of English sparkling rosé wine and a life-size cardboard cut-out of Her Maj, tune in to its virtual line-up, and it’ll be almost as though you’re there. Almost.
