RHS Chelsea Floristry Competition has made a few changes this year to the design concepts and rules. Most notably is the banning of plastic based foam, glue and wire and replacing these with more planet friendly and sustainable options.

We all understand that the fresh flower industry is global, as are its challenges. This year the concept for Floristry & Floral Design at RHS Chelsea 2021 was ‘Our World’. This was presented in a series of 14 different installations created by some of the country’s top florists.

The 4 themes for floral artisans to show their designs are :
Theme I   British Blooms
Theme II  Preservation
Theme III  Pollination 
Theme IV Beauty of Nature

Here are some images of the installations.
