  1. Take in Emma Stothard’s (who is joining us for the third year running!) glorious wire and willow sculptures. Inspired by nature, they include the iconic peacock gateway and a fantastic pheasant statue.

 

  1. Sample some of the fine food on offer, designed by Raymond Blanc OBE himself. Including breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and light dinner options!  FIND OUT MORE 

 

  1. Sway along to live music from talented musicians, Wandering Hands, on Thursday evening, followed by a live DJ set from our outdoor bar - the perfect setting to let your hair down!

 

  1. Order a gin-tastic Warner Edward’s cocktail. The honey infused gin is particularly good… you’d really *bee* crazy not to try it. Plus, watch how the gin is made by visiting their on-site mini distillery (the first portable gin distillery in the world!) at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.  Click here to meet the bees behind the gin...

  1. Take your senses on a journey and explore the garden, inhale in the natural aromas, blissful sounds and colourful surroundings.
     

  1. Le Blanc Fine Art is a collection of bronze sculptures created by Lloyd Le Blanc and the late Judith Holmes Drewry (the pair were brought together by Raymond himself). These artworks can be seen around Jardin Blanc, they are all limited edition and cast in Leicestershire.

     

  2. Relive your childhood and swing between the trees on one of the intricately designed swing seats, exclusive to Jardin Blanc and designed by Myburgh Designs.

  3. See London’s very own ‘big apple’ in the form of an exquisite oversized fruit sculpture. Found amidst the greenery of Jardin Blanc, these deliciously kitsch sculptures are by Bull & Stein www.bullstein.com

 

  1. The infamous ‘Flopsy and Mopsy’ will be making a comeback this year. You’ll be able to spot these little green rascals hopping around the entrance.*

 

  1. The atmosphere. Now, we can’t tell you exactly what this is like, as that’s something you can only really appreciate when there. For a small taste of the Jardin Blanc-feeling why not watch the video from last summer’s event ...  WATCH VIDEO HERE

     

  2. Get away from the hustle and bustle oJB collage f the city and embrace tranquillity. If you’ve brought friends or colleagues then make most of the time in this secluded environment, relax, chat, laugh and enjoy one another’s company.
     

  3. Finally, ensure you make time to see the rest of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. There is so much to do and see. Plus, if you book Jardin Blanc tickets on the Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd May then you will be able to see the show exclusively with members… whilst everything is still at its freshest.
     

*Please note the hopping is, sadly, metaphorical.
