Every year Chelsea joins in the spirits of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show with Chelsea In Bloom. The alternative floral art show takes place along the streets of Chelsea, with Sloane Street, Kings Road and Duke of York Square being where you will find the majority of the displays. Restaurants, hotels and retailers all take part and compete for the coveted awards.
This year’s theme was ‘Under the Sea’ and Chelsea in Bloom partnered with charity Plastic Oceans UK, who aim to stop the pollution of plastic reaching the oceans. I loved the theme, it really saw some creative designs, with octopus a popular choice, you couldn’t miss seeing them at Kiki McDonough and Polpo. Hackett won this year’s best floral display, their window had a yellow submarine and divers, with tentacles on the outside and inside of the windows which weas quite spectacular.
Here are some of my favourite displays from this year’s Chelsea in Bloom.
