The world’s most famous flower show is a feast for your imagination, bursting with inspiration for all things horticultural. This programme provides unprecedented access to the experts themselves.
RHS Show Manager Alex Denman is your guide to this unique behind the scenes journey from the day the designers arrive at the ground to the moment the gardens and exhibitions are revealed to the eager public. We take a closer look at the themes that have influenced this year’s displays, from the bio-diversity of the Eden Project garden, to the Children Society’s aim to encourage teenagers to become more involved in horticulture. We will also delve into the wonders of the Great Pavilion – bursting to the seams with plants from all corners of the world, colourful, creatively displayed and totally irresistible. And we find out just what it takes to score that prestigious gold medal as we talk to the RHS about what their judges are looking for when it comes to a perfect score. And of course there are plenty of hints and tips from the experts themselves to help you bring a part of Chelsea back to your own garden.
