If the nearest you get to gardening is ordering your kids to mow your lawn, then break out your sunglasses and head down to Chelsea to see how it's really done. This is gardening by professionals.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the gardening equivalent of Ascot. The most green-fingered people in Britain spend weeks planning out their own little plots in the grounds of Christopher Wren's Royal Hospital.

There will be a mesmorising array of show gardens and plants on show, created by world-renowned designers. Some of them are almost like mini-film sets. Plenty of celebs will be in attendance as well -- even the Queen. (The celebs are usually there on the first two days only, which are reserved for RHS members. The public can only buy tickets for the final three days.)

Craig has never been to the Chelsea Flower Show itself, but he has been around the grounds of the Royal Hospital. You might like to read his review before you go, to see what they're like. You might like to read his review of Kew Gardens and RHS Wisley Gardens as well.
