14 Garden Sculptures from 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The 30 gardens at the 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show are the main attraction.They draw you in with their grand design, fantastic colours and most are magical and inspiring.  In total, there are 17 show gardens, six artisan gardens, and seven fresh gardens which showcase the best of garden design and landscape. Complimenting and often enhancing these designs are garden sculptures – some are grand in nature and price and others are inexpensive and whimsical.  Below are 14 of the larger garden sculpture displays from the 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
