R.H.S. 2004

Chelsea synonymous with gardens!

A Royal Horticultural event;

Society merged in social and verdant pastures;

A bicentennial jewel.


A majestic tour reviews the presentations;

The range of fauna extreme.

Individuals excel in design,

Colour and fragrance are optimal in all symmetry.


The humble garden is elevated;

Judged of its worthiness;

Accorded its medallion,

according to tradition.


Nature pursued in its perfection;

The most stunning ornate simplicity;

The merging and melding of all concept;

Displayed in a breathless foray.


Each creator is due an accolade.

Sponsorship supports the structure;

Corporate identities are recovered,

Canvassed with a new mask.


Go for the Gold!

High standards demand the best.

Grades are guarded amongst the privileged;

Consensus must rule the day.


A long history of excellence encourages effort.

Perfection can be pursued in plant production.

Presentation can be impressive whether simple or ornate.

The garden canvas imprints in living form.
