If you are travelling from Cambridge, the east of England or further afield into Stansted Airport, Liverpool Street Station and Underground Station are your perfect link to the very well-renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show. There are several RHS flower shows that take place each year, but Chelsea is without a doubt the largest and the best-known, attracting massive media attention as well as over 150,000 visitors each year to see more than 550 exhibitors. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show used to be known as the Great Spring Show and has been a regular event on the flower lover's calendar since 1862.
Today the Flower Show runs for five days, accepting only pre-booked visitors and only RHS members on the first two days. It is attended by members of the Royal Family and is the showcase for cutting edge garden design, with the amount of space devoted to the show increasing over the years. In addition to experimental design, the Chelsea Flower Show also launches new varieties of plants and flowers and revives old favourites for a welcoming public. In recent years the Artisan artistic garden category has received many entries and a lot of interest.
The officially designated flower for London is the Rosebay Willowherb or Chamerion angustifolium, a herb which is often plentiful in fields and pastures. It is a symmetrical plant with a delicate, tear-drop shaped spray of deep pink to magenta petals. Despite its fragile appearance, the plant is extremely tough and pioneering, able to speedily cover open areas such as following a forest fire, lending it its alternative name of 'fireweed'. Perhaps this makes it a particularly appropriate choice for London after the city's notorious Great Fire of 1666.
Every Sunday, in the vicinity of Liverpool Street, the Columbia Road Flower Market takes place. There's a transformation into a jungle of plants and flowers with everything from banana trees to bedding out plants on offer. There are bargains to be had and the air is heavy with the beautiful floral fragrance and the shouts of the market traders. Flowers are both locally home grown and imported and all the surrounding independent businesses have a connection to the market.
When every variety of flower imaginable is available at the Columbia Road Flower Market, you would be forgiven for wondering why an online flower delivery service is necessary? What could be better than strolling the fresh flower market and buying beautiful blooms for yourself?
* More choice at your fingertips. While it's true that the Columbia Road Flower Market has unimaginable choice, you'd have to traverse the length and breadth of all 52 stalls at the market to browse it all - and it is enormously busy. A few clicks will get you results on the Arena Flowers website and your floral gift will be on its way to your lucky recipient before you know it.
* Accessibility - the Columbia Road Flower Market starts early on a Sunday morning and is not the easiest to navigate around comfortably due to the large volume of trade customers. It may also not be a very convenient location for you, depending on where you live in the country! You can go to your computer at any time of day or night and easily spend a few minutes selecting and personalising the perfect floral gift on the Arena Flowers website.
* Arrangement - the Columbia Road Flower market contains stunning flowers but part of the market's appeal is the speed and high energy transactions. This leaves little time for the meticulous care that goes into a hand made arrangement. Arena Flowers has a range of options from pretty posies through to bountiful bouquets, all of which have enough variety to match all tastes.
