Gardens Illustrated: Chelsea Plant Preview Day

The Plant Centre, Hortus Loci, Hound Green.

Hortus Loci nursery has become known for its expertise in sourcing a wide range of plants from around the world and working with designers to supply plants for their show gardens. On the reader day you'll get a sneak peek at what's likely to be this year's must-have plant, as well as an insight into the likely trends at Chelsea.
