This is Guruve’s 14th consecutive year exhibiting superb quality contemporary Shona sculpture at the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Artists on display include:

  • a stunning garden sculpture centrepiece by Peter Gwisa
  • brand new works by perennial favourite Tonderai Sowa
  • new star artist Willard Bopoto whose pieces are fluid and organic
  • NAMA award winner Rufaro Murenza who makes the finest figurative sculptures in Zimbabwe

There are over 80 trade stands displaying garden sculpture at Chelsea, in a wide array of media. Guruve have one of the most affordable and best value displays of garden sculpture at Chelsea; our prices range from £500 – £3,000 for most pieces.

Weather set fair for a super show…

The warm sunshine of a glorious late May morning lifts the colours of the flowers and the spirits of exhibitors and guests alike!

The 2018 Chelsea Flower Show opens today to invited guests, the press and later the Queen and the Royal Family – followed by tonight’s Gala Night society event and then from tomorrow to RHS members.

The weather forecast is glorious – more Spring sunshine to come throughout the week – so let’s crack open the fizz and enjoy ourselves!

If you’re not fortunate enough to have tickets to the show, there’s always Hampton Court Flower Show later in the year – we hope to see you there!

Tonderai Sowa


Since his ‘discovery’ by Guruve in 2010, Tonderai’s career has accelerated in leaps and bounds. In 2014, he was one of four Zimbabwean artists to participate in an Artist Exchange in Angola. He is one of Guruve’s most popular artists.
