The colours of autumn will come to the fore for an unusual edition of the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show.

The event will take place outside of its usual springtime slot after the Royal Horticultural Society postponed the event in May due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The event had been cancelled in 2020.

The autumn event will have a different look, with blooms such as asters and dahlias as well as trees full of fruit and berries all having some time in the spotlight.
