Celebrating a centenary of gardening magnificence, the world-renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show opens today in London.

Each year, this annual spectacle attracts thousands of visitors to the grounds of London’s Royal Hospital in Chelsea. Flower enthusiasts and green-fingered gardeners from around the world gather to see the latest in horticultural design, as well as new plant varieties, botanical color trends and impressive floral displays.

Although launched in 1862, this prestigious and quintessentially British event only began attracting media and royal interest 100 years ago. The below photographs published in The Telegraph back in March particularly enamored us this year. You can watch live coverage of the event via The Telegraph blog.
