Chelsea Flower Show 2015

Chelsea Flower Show is one of those events that gets me giddy every single year. The magic the designers and growers weave with their fabulous gardens and floral displays needs to be seen to be believed. This year I managed to wangle going on both the Thursday and Saturday of the show which meant I got to see the blooms at their peak at the beginning of the show but also got stuck into the chaos of plant sell off at the weekend.

Flowers are wonderful inspiration for rag rugs… maybe because of their vibrant colours and textures so below are a few of our favourite photos from Chelsea Flower Show 2015 to inspire rag ruggers far and wide.

The Showcase Gardens:

Cornish Slate Garden Chelsea

This gorgeous garden used 40,000 pieces of cornish slate in its construction. Definitely a worthy gold.
