  Chelsea Flower Show Friday 10 May 2002  
Creating a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show might be considered an artistic pursuit, but in fact the skills required are more akin to planning a military operation.

That's what Jinny Blom, co designer with Prince Charles of the Healing Garden, has found. It's her first ever Chelsea and she's only been running her own design practice for two years. Even for old hands the logistics are crucial and nerve wracking.
Six weeks before D day, Corinne Julius accompanies Jinny to the landscapers, Crocus, to sit in on the battle plans, with Director, Mark Fane, Health and Safety Manager Andrew Butler and Site Manager Graham Hoyle.
