If you are travelling to this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show using the London Underground, you can start the experience at Sloane Square station.
As you approach the station concourse from the platforms you will be greeted by a number of planters which contain a selection of the flowers that are contained in the M&G Investments show garden.
Taking inspiration from the unique Mediterranean landscape of Malta, the design for the M&G Garden 2017 draws on the ecological diversity and sustainability of the region, which acts a microcosm for the planet as a whole.
There will be some specific plants that are unique to Malta, showing off the incredible diversity of its ecologiesa: Euphorbia melitense, Darniella melitense, Limonium melitense, Mattiola incana subsp. Melitense. There is a strong amount of yellow and this is the predominant colour in the flowering plants in Maltese spring time.
