The great thing about not having a telly in London is that when I go to the Chelsea Flower Show it all comes as a complete revelation - no BBC spoilers telling me what to expect!
So the first thing I had to do was make my way to ‘The Great Chelsea Garden Challenge’ garden - a large and important plot designed by the winner of the BBC competition, Sean Murray. He created a front garden space with room for a car, but secluded spaces too. One of our Open Learning recent graduates, Stephanie Humes, was one of only six finalists and I very much wanted to meet her. Here she is with Sean Murray - all the competitors had clearly bonded and all turned up to help Sean build his garden.
