Warm weather could lead to unique Chelsea Flower Show

The Chelsea Flower Show begins on May 24th

Those with Chelsea Flower Show tickets will get a rare opportunity to see plants not normally seen at the event, thanks to the warm weather.

Horticulture Week reports that unseasonably high temperatures in the UK this spring mean many flowers have bloomed earlier than they normally would.

While this has made things difficult for growers in terms of planning, it means visitors will be able to see a number of flowers that are not normally around at this time of year.

"Normally, as soon as you see a bud on oriental poppies you know it is a month and a half before they will be fully in flower. That's all thrown out of the window this year," Bradstone Fusion garden mentor Chris Beardshaw told the news provider.

"However, we will be able to bring in a range of summer plants that we were not considering for the show because it is too early in the year. This year there will be a very different look to Chelsea because of the range of plants."

The Chelsea Flower Show takes place at the Royal Hospital Gardens from May 24th to 28th.
