Royal Hospital Lieutenant Governor Major General Peter Currie said: "After a century of hosting the Chelsea Flower Show it has become almost part of the DNA of the Royal Hospital, and we are therefore delighted the future of the world's leading horticultural show at our home is secure.  This old place is not only a most appropriate setting, but the income we gain from the Show is critical to our charitable objectives: caring for the Chelsea Pensioners and maintaining this great set of buildings."  

RHS director general Sue Biggs said: "The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the pinnacle of gardening, showcasing the very best in horticulture. The world's best designers, growers and exhibitors, all go to great lengths to deliver the world's best and most celebrated gardening show, which is also a fantastic platform for us to highlight our own charitable work.

"It wouldn't be the RHS Chelsea Flower Show without the Royal Hospital and we are delighted that in the show's 101st year we can continue to call this historic site its home."
