The Royal Horticultural Society’s prestigious annual event, RHS Chelsea Flower Show, returns this May (23 – 27), for five days of cutting-edge Garden Design, professional, high quality Landscaping using some of the world’s most innovative, environmentally friendly and stylish materials as well as a large variety of plants, gardening products and accessories guaranteed to entertain and inspire any gardening enthusiast.
The British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) will be returning to RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2017, with an improved stand location and a brand new theme. Located at the top of Eastern Avenue, adjacent to the RHS, BALI’s new stand position will be located in a prime position, perfectly placed to attract a multitude of visitors with a new colourful display crammed full of traditional planting, tall garden structures and high quality living walls; adding vibrancy and freshness. BALI will be working with BALI Registered Affiliate members Pile Height, Harrod Horticultural and WoodblocX, with more to be announced.
To-date, 13 Registered members, including a mix of Registered Designers and Contractors, across 15 Gardens, have revealed their plans for the 2017 show, spanning across Show, Fresh and Artisan Garden categories. Each will be working with fellow Contracting and Designer colleagues to put on a magnificent display of colour, atmosphere, style, structure, design and quality against a specific brief and working alongside the Show, Fresh and Artisan Garden sponsors, competing for those all-important medals and accolades.
