The highlight of the year here at Heyland & Whittle is always the Chelsea Flower Show and it’s so sad not to be at our stand welcoming all your smiling faces. In fact, it’s the social side of the show that we’re missing the most and we’re sure that you’re probably the same.
We know that many of you have special friends and relations that you go to Chelsea with every year. We’ve met so many mothers and daughters who enjoy a lovely time together at the show, reconnecting and bonding over the flowers. There’s childhood friends who live in different parts of the country, but still meet up at Chelsea, and even patrons who’ve met at the show and continue to get together over their shared love of horticulture.

Mark Chelsea Flower Show in isolation
Instead of feeling glum about the fact you’re not at Chelsea seeing your flower-loving friends, think about ways you can still have experiences together. Perhaps you could synchronise your diaries and enjoy one of the Virtual Chelsea events taking place online together. There’ll be online tours, masterclasses and competitions to enjoy.
Take a look at the weather forecast and plan a garden party via video chat. You may be in different parts of the country or even just down the road, but you can enjoy each other’s gardens through the power of modern technology. Make a real event of it with a bit of home baking and your best china for a socially distanced tea party.

Send a little something
When we can’t be in the same place as our loved ones it’s always nice to send them a little surprise in the post. It could be a bunch of flowers or a new gardening tool to help them keep their own little green patch up to Chelsea standards. Perhaps you’d like to send them one of the scents of Chelsea, with our Cherry Blossom Hand & Body Wash evoking a beautiful spring garden.
You and your friends may remember washing your hands with Heyland & Whittle products in the past. We’re the official sponsors of the Chelsea Flower Show’s loos, which are always fully stocked with our washes and lotions. Did you enjoy a little bit of excitement as you spotted the premium toiletries last year and delight in rubbing our luxurious Wild Lemongrass Hand & Body Lotion into your hands? Relive that joy by sending a little parcel of loveliness to your usual Chelsea partner in crime.
Add a personal touch
There are a number of packaging options you can choose from when ordering from Heyland & Whittle. There are beautifully wrapped gifts, elegant boxes and stunning hampers. We can add your individual gift message to parcels, so your friends and loved ones know it’s come from you and also the specific link to Chelsea. Perhaps you’ll want to add a note about the fun you'll have at the show in 2021.
A little extra something
In honour of the Chelsea Flower Show, we’re also offering something a little extra here at Heyland & Whittle. Spend £30 with us and we’ll gift you three Mini Washes and a Mini Lotion from our Travel Collection. Just use the code ChelseaSet at the checkout.
