The Chelsea Flower Show Saving the Environment

The Chelsea Flower Show Saving the Environment

The Chelsea Flower Show has come to an end, but this does not mean the flowers featured are going to be thrown out. Some award-winning flowers and even entire gardens are making their way to E-bay.

A creation by Angus Thompson and Jane Brockbank won several awards and when it was put on the site, bidding started at about 32,000 GBP. The money will be going for a good cause, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. As for the winning bidder, he or she will get three mature trees, all the flowers found in the display, seating and beautiful and unique “floating walkway.”

The Chelsea Flower Show is attempting to protect the environment by ensuring that most of the plants find a new home that is not in a garbage dump. They are doing this for the first time and there are high hopes that this will become a tradition.

In addition, materials that are bad for the environment like petrified wood, fossil stones and gas patio heaters have been banned from the show altogether.
