Young Florist of the Year photo galleries

Entrants to the RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the Year are aged between 16 - 25, they arrived at the showground last night to set up their designs in place of the senior entries, and they work to the same brief. This year that means they're creating floral kites, and as with the earlier designs, we're so impressed by the range of different styles to come from the same task; we've seen box kites, cross kites, hoops, loops, butterflies and even jellyfish. Check out each piece in our galleries below.
