35,000 Flowers


What happens to all the plants and flowers when the Chelsea flower show finishes?  Those that enter must include the answer to this question as part of their entry application.  The majority of garden installations and plants go to local communities and charities.

Today 35,000 flowers cover the steps leading from Regents Canal to Granary Square in front of St Martin's University of the Arts.  The colourful display will then be offered to the public.  So if you want some marigolds, geraniums and petunias, head over there on 7th June between 10am and 6pm.  All the proceeds will be given to Global Generation, the folk behind the skip gardens.
