The thrilling show comes all the way from Saint Lucia, the HQ of pioneering environmentalists, Our Planet, which was established on the tropical island five years ago to highlight the challenges faced by small islands due to climate change and advise the government and local businesses on environmental issues.
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a garden show held for five days in May by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). The grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in Chelsea, London, are transformed into show gardens, inspirational small gardens and vibrant horticultural displays for the world’s most famous flower show.
Louis Lewis, Director of Tourism at Saint Lucia Tourist Board commented: ‘We are so proud of this fantastic exhibit which showcased this week at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The stand has so far attracted 2,000 people a day and is proving popular with the British public, including Prince Harry who also visited.
‘Saint Lucia, famed for its natural beauty and home to a diverse eco-system, was chosen as Our Planet’s main location as a small island facing many environmental challenges. We fully support Our Planet’s broader remit to inspire the public by making environmental education fun.‘
