Chelsea Flower Show nature for the 1%?

The  Chelsea Flower Show usually lightens even the hardest of hearts.

Not so with John Vidal writing in the Guardian today:

“The Chelsea flower show is nature for the 1%

A new breed of pest is swarming over London SW3, trying to grow not plants but wealth. It’s time to reclaim the natural world“.

What are your thoughts?

Is Chelsea still something to be admired or is the desire for perfection making it totally out of touch with the real world of nature in our gardens?

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
