For most visitors the main highlight of attending the Chelsea Flower Shower is to see the exquisite large show gardens on display and this year's selection did not disappoint! The designs this year were more diverse and there were so many aspects to be inspired with. Let's take a look at these beautiful gardens:

A show garden called The Viking Ocean Cruises Show Garden for some reason did not manage to take photos of won a Silver medal.
And last not but not the least, a garden that was not in contention for a medal but is in it's own special category is the garden created by Sean Murray, the winner of this years Great Chelsea Garden Challenge. A very inspiring front garden...
As I've mentioned earlier there are so many elements on each show garden to be inspired with and apply to ones own garden! Our coverage of this year's Chelsea will continue with the Artisan Gardens and Fresh Garden and some glimpses of the displays in the Great Pavilion coming up shortly!
