Flower arranger Nickey Gurret plants to showcase flowers from Bermuda at the renowned Royal Horticulture Society Chelsea Flower Show.

The event, which is held in London, England, brings more than 157,000 visitors to see floral exhibitions. One of the main events at the celebration is a large scale floral exhibit that showcases the blossoms native to various countries around the globe. Gurrett hopes that she can add Bermuda to the list of nations showcased at the festival, according to the Royal Gazette.

However, transporting the blossoms across borders can be a challenge, Gurrett told the news source.

The designer said that cost is also an issue, as the transportation of soil and other necessary materials would run approximately $20,000. She will also have to gather volunteers to help her carryout the mission.
