The 2021 show, which would have taken place between 18 May and 23 May. It has been moved to run from 21 September to 26 September. The RHS will still hold the event at The Royal Hospital, Chelsea.
Before postponing the show, the RHS had planned to introduce new health and safety measures to the event. They were reducing visitor numbers and spreading the Show over an extra day.
However, as lockdown continues and the coronavirus infection rate remains high, it has taken the decision the decision to delay the RHS Chelsea Flower Show until the autumn.
