Harrods launches retail Chelsea Flower Show initiatives

London department store Harrods is working on several retail and garden design projects around its Diarmuid Gavin-designed Chelsea Flower Show garden.

The store has launched a Diarmuid Gavin "bespoke garden design and landscape solutions service" through its interiors department.

Diarmuid Gavin will give talks on the Chelsea garden on the 24th–28th May, Helen Dillon on 24th and 27th May and Mark Gregory on 25th and 28th May.

In addition Harrods will host a month-long Heath Robinson exhibition from 4-29 May, curated by The William Heath Robinson Trust and showcasing the finest works of one of the innovative artist, cartoonist and social historian. Consisting of a wide range of illustrations, the exhibition will honour the idea of the British eccentric, and will also demonstrate how Robinson’s art inspired the Harrods British Eccentrics Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show 2016.

A themed £24.95 umbrella is available and a Harrods floral afternoon tea is £44 each including champagne.
