Chelsea gardens to benefit charity

The Charities Advisory Trust is to auction its entire Chelsea Flower Show garden on eBay after the event finishes.

"The winner will be able to come and collect it or have it replanted in their garden for an extra fee," said Hilary Blume, the founder of the trust.

The trust will also run a scheme to distribute unwanted plants and building materials from all gardens exhibited at the show, which takes place from 20 to 24 May in London, to charities and community groups. In the past, most gardens have ended up in landfill sites.

Charities interesting in collecint their own little piece of Chelsea can contact the Trust for more details.
