LONDON: A secret garden and model erupting volcano are among the main attractions of this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, Britain’s premier gardening show which is enticing royalty and celebrities alike this week.

Queen Elizabeth is expected to visit the show in Chelsea, a prosperous area of central London, on Monday, while media mogul Rupert Murdoch and actress Judi Dench were among visitors ahead of the show’s official opening on Tuesday.

The show, which is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), will run from May 23-27, and is expected to draw around 165,000 visitors in total. The RHS said tickets sold out two weeks in advance of its opening.
