Taking place between May 21-25, the floral ring competition will celebrate the centenary of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and be put on display for judges and visitors to admire at the centenary concert in Ranelagh Gardens.
Rebecca’s career has bloomed after being selected as the only finalist to represent Dorset in the prestigious competition when her distinctive bridal bouquet design – for a gold medal-winning Chelsea gardener to carry at her wedding ceremony – caught the eye and the imaginations of the judges.
Rebecca said “It is a fantastic opportunity to be the only Dorset finalist for the centenary of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. As this year’s brief has been left wide open it will require all of a florist’s skill and expertise to produce a floral ring that lifts the ordinary to the extraordinary and really blows the judges away.”
The brief set by the RHS Chelsea Flower Show dictates the floral ring must draw inspiration from something or someone associated with Chelsea. Rebecca has just over a month to design and craft her final arrangement, which is being sponsored by Flora Direct, a trade supplier of fresh cut flowers, pot plants and sundries direct from Holland
