LONDON, (Reuters) - London comes into full bloom this week for the annual Chelsea Flower Show, with floral displays and edgy designs expected to attract thousands of gardening fans.

The May 24-28 event, held on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, this year also features a display of thousands of crocheted poppies, an acoustic garden as well as a floral arch to mark the 90th birthday of Britain's Queen Elizabeth.
