Plasticine Flowers at the Chelsea Flower Show

Plasticine Flowers at the Chelsea Flower Show

The Chelsea Flower Show is in full swing and many gardeners are preparing to present their less than ordinary flower creations. Every idea will be thrown into the ring – perfume, piranhas, fake flowers and frogs.

Fake flowers are usually banned at the Chelsea Flower Show, but this year because of economic problems the rules have been relaxed and now fake flowers will be permitted to be a part of several displays.

TV presenter James May is the creator of the, ‘Plasticine Paradise’ display. With the help of war veterans and school children they modelled a flower display out of nearly two-and-a-half tonnes of plasticine.

Head of Shows, Bob Sweet says the show is sold even with some of these changes taking place, “The chemistry of the show has changed a little bit. For the last few years people have invested hundreds of thousands of pounds in gardens but this year designers are being much more resourceful and probably from a public perspective it will be a lot more interesting.”
