Arrive in Style at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show
18 March 2019
May 1913 saw the first show at Chelsea, initially known as the Great Spring Show.
The first shows were three-day events held in a single marquee, and royal visits were yet to become a tradition. The King and Queen did not attend in 1913, but the King's Mother, Queen Alexandra, attended with two of her children. The only garden to win a Gold medal before the war was also in 1913 and was awarded to a rock garden created by John Wood of Boston Spa.
