Live from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

on Wednesday, 17 May 2017. Posted in News

Next week, Tuesday 23 - Saturday 27 May, is the annual gardening show that gets everyone excited, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

BBC Radio 2 will be there with a bunch of 'Feel Good Gardens' celebrating 50 years of the show. Each garden will be named after one of BBC 2's hosts.

Chris Evans, who hosts the Breakfast Show daily, will broadcast live from the grounds on Monday 22 May, between 6.30 - 9.30a.m. We're pretty sure he's be interviewing other BBC 2 presenters and their garden designers, but excitingly, he will also be talking to efig Ambassador, Ian Drummond of Indoor Garden Design.
