2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show Chengdu Silk Road Garden

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, formally known as the Great Spring Show, is a garden show held for five days in May by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in Chelsea, London. Held at Chelsea since 1912, it is the world’s most prestigious flower show that inspires millions through showcasing the best in garden design in the United Kingdom, and perhaps in the world, attracting visitors from all continents. Several members of the British Royal Family attend a preview of the show, as part of the royal patronage of the RHS. 

Sponsored by Creativersal, a leading company in creating concept, development, and management of modern cultural projects, the Chengdu Silk Road Garden was held on March 23rd, 2017. Laurie Chetwood, a renowned architect from London, and Patrick Collins, garden designer, were the main contributors to build up the garden. At the heart of the garden, it featured the circular symbol of the 3000 years old sun and immortal bird legend, which also belonged to the Chengdu City and Chinese Cultural Heritage’s logo. The symbol lied on the central theatrical ‘plaza’. 

This colorful centerpiece lined with the ‘Silk Road’ path – with silk woven along its route – ran through the length of the garden. Besides representing historic meanings and UK and China collaboration, the Chengdu Silk Road Garden also referenced to the handwork Su embroidery.
