RHS Chelsea Flower Show, 2010 Episode 12 of 15

Duration: 30 minutes

Nicki Chapman and Andy Sturgeon celebrate the people behind the scenes that make Chelsea one of the greatest flower shows in the horticultural world.

There's a tribute to the young generation of gardeners and designers cutting their teeth at the show for the first time.

And Andy talks to designers Jane Owen and Ann-Marie Powell, who have chosen to highlight the plight of our tropical rain forests by building one in the Royal Hospital grounds - with help from a group of ladies from Cameroon.
