Every year, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in England is a showcase to celebrate the beauty and innovation in horticulture and the history of gardening. Just seeing the photos of the Chelsea Flower Show doesn’t give you the full picture of the scale and grandeur of the floral displays. Lucky for us, you will be able to stream the Chelsea Flower show live, thanks to BritBox.

BritBox is a digital video subscription service that lets you watch shows, movies, and documentaries from Britain’s broadcasting powerhouses—BBC Studios and ITV. Viewers in the United States and Canada get access to most of the content 24 hours after the UK premiere. (So, you can watch the latest episode of Call the Midwife the day after it airs.) Try BritBox with a 7-day free trial, then a subscription is $6.99 per month (or $69.99 per year).

The Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show will air from May 20-24 and lets you get a peek into the amazing displays without buying a ticket to England. This year, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton will have her design debut on a display called, “The RHS Back to Nature Garden,” which is inspired by childhood memories of the natural world. The show will also feature an eco-garden by CAMFED—a charity backed by Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle that supports the education of women and girls in Africa. Get your fill of Mary Berry, your favorite judge from the Great British Baking Show, who will be one of the guest presenters for the flower show.

If you love watching the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, your BritBox subscription will cover other Royal Horticultural Society shows, like the Chatsworth Flower Show in June, the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival in July, and the Flower Show Tatton Park, also in July. You can branch out from the RHS show coverage and explore other popular British gardening and lifestyle programs like Gardener’s World and Springwatch.

Now you can watch your favorite British programming (or find some new binge-worthy shows!) on BritBox, which will also give you the best experience of the Chelsea Garden Show without actually being there. We can’t wait to see what the duchesses, expert garden designers, and architects come up with this year to celebrate the magical world of gardening.
