Spring is here, the sun is shining and the Chelsea Flower Show is back for another year!

The show, which takes place from 21 to 25 May, is one of the world's most famous flora-filled occasions.

More than 165,000 people visit each year, including the Queen.

This year's Chelsea Flower Show showcases the Duchess of Cambridge's very own Back to Nature garden, which has its own tree house and a rope swing!

Catherine worked with landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White to create the garden, and she hopes it will show how nature can have a positive impact on people's mental and physical well-being.

Some of the Chelsea's most unusual displays over the years.

This installation from the 2016 show included a whopping 300,000 hard-knitted poppies.

The spectacular creation was put together by designer Philip Johnson who joined forces with the 5000 Poppies Project to create the tribute.

The project's creators, Lyn Berry and Margaret Knight, initially wanted to make 120 poppies to honour their fathers who fought in World War Two, but with the help of 50,000 contributors, they ended up with quite a few more!

The elaborate Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden display, which won awards at the show for six years in a row, was exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2015.

It was created by Khun Pisit and Khun Nongnooch Tansajja, who officially opened the garden in Thailand back in 1980.
