For the first time since World War II, the Chelsea Flower Show is cancelled, it was announced last month. This year’s absence of the pageantry found in the Queen’s favourite outing, however, has since revealed itself to be trivial in light of the country’s and the world’s devastating situation. Flowers are not insignificant in the battle, though. Covid-19 has left the fate of the workforce in unprecedented territory, and one field that is facing new challenges as a result is floristry.
Due to open on July 30 this year, Bridgewater will be the fifth garden to join the Royal Horticultural Society portfolio.
