The highlights of the Chelsea Flower Show through the eyes of #Instagram
The Chelsea Flower Show, organised by the Royal Horticultural Society, is one of the most famous flower shows in the world. Having stamped its mark in the UK since 1912, it is typically held for five days in May in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London. As this year's edition wraps up over the weekend, we look back at some of the beautiful show gardens on display as told through Instagram:
