In an open letter about the creation of an online Virtual RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Sue Biggs, RHS Director General, said: “As you can imagine we’re at the early stages of planning this, so more details will be announced in coming weeks. We cannot create the actual show at The Royal Hospital Chelsea, but we are looking at what we can do on our RHS website and other platforms for people to enjoy and to share the joy of gardening.
“We will of course be asking for the ideas and involvement of growers, nurseries, designers, landscapers and trade stands too and look forward to sharing ideas very soon.”
Sue Biggs added: "We're lucky to live in a digital age where we're able to bring aspects of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show online so we can continue to share the world's best in horticulture and bring garden design inspiration; breathtaking displays and horticultural knowledge for the nation to enjoy during this difficult time.”
Further information regarding the virtual Chelsea Flower Show can be found on the event website.
