If the nearest you get to gardening is mowing your lawn, then break out your sunglasses and head down to the Chelsea to see how it's really done.
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the gardening equivalent of Ascot -- when the great and good of the gardening world descend on Christoper Wren's architectural masterpiece. Plenty of celebs will be in attendance -- chief of which will be our own green-fingered Queen.
More than eight hundred botanical brains will spend four weeks plotting their plots in the grounds of the Royal Hospital. On display will be a mesmorising array of show gardens and plants from world-renowned designers and nurseries. As a showcase of all the latest trends, you'll be sure to take a little bit of inspiration home for your own garden.
Note: The first two days are for RHS members only.
The Royal Hospital was designed by Christopher Wren as a home for veteran and disabled soldiers. It is now home to the famous Chelsea Pensioners.
