Blooming magic: Toby de Lacey - the Chelsea Flower Show

From Saturday Morning, 8:50 am on 25 May 2024

Gardeners flock to the 'Chelsea Flower Show' for ideas about cutting-edge garden design and to see fabulous floral displays.

Floral designer Toby de Lacey - a regular behind the scenes - is also instrumental in the simultaneous free flower show 'Chelsea in Bloom' held on Kings Road.

Toby came to floristry following a career in engineering, making carbon fibre parts for the Formula 1 and Aerospace. He has only recently returned to the UK after a summer in New Zealand, where he spent time foraging for wild flowers and creating displays.
