Essential info the competitors need to bear in mind!

Each competitor will have a platform space of 1.6m by 1.6m where they can display their throne, the throne must occupy a maximum space of 1m wide by 1m deep and 2.5m in  height. The throne can be inspired by any style or colour and there is no expectation that plant material must all be from spring plants and flowers.

What a challenge! As any one that follows the RHS Chelsea FOY competition knows it’s always a thought provoking and interesting schedule, but this year seems like it’ll test the innovation and creativity of the countries best competitive florists more than most.

We wish all the competitors the very best of luck.

How did they get to compete in the competition?

The finalists gained the highest points in the country following heats held throughout the UK organised by the BFA.
