RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014 Photos

This is the 101st RHS Chelsea Flower Show and it has grown to fill a large and sprawling site on the grounds of the Chelsea Royal Hospital.

2014 is RHS Britain in Bloom's 50th anniversary so the RHS and Alan Titchmarsh have collaborated on a garden feature to celebrate Europe's largest community gardening campaign.

There is also a focus on young people and young designers this year, and while no one garden stood out to me this year I got plenty of inspiration from the gardens and displays.

The moving water at the arches symbolizes sustainable energy and the polished steel depicts the new city center.

This garden won a Silver-Gilt Flora Award.
