One of the world's most prestigious flower shows opened in London this week, showcasing blooms from across the globe.
Officiated by Queen Elizabeth, the annual Chelsea Flower Show draws thousands of visitors and horticulture enthusiasts.
For the first two days, the show is only open to members of the Royal Horticultural Society, while members of the public are welcome to attend from May 24.
In celebration of all things blooming marvelous, we've gone in search of the top displays, and what visitors can expect.

The Imperial Garden
Health and Wellbeing gardens announced for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018 / RHS Gardening! The Pearlfisher Garden, from the Space to Grow garden category, addresses the devastating impact of plastic waste on our oceans while at the same time celebrating the beauty of its underwater gardens. Featuring a series of aquatic tanks containing fish with cacti and succulents used to imitate the structure and form of underwater coral, the design is a call-to-action to brands, businesses and designers to create sustainable life cycles for products and packaging #enviroment #ChelseaFlowerShow

Flowers From The Farm
Congratulations to the team of @flowersfromthefarm who have smashed it out of the park winning a gold medal for their first Chelsea display! Flowers from the Farm is a network of independant British growers like me. This is a great advert for British Flowers - you don't get gold at Chelsea without perfect blooms. These flowers came from nearly 100 different growers round the country - quite a feat and certainly not the easiest to manage. Well done to all involved!
