  Chelsea Flower Show Friday 17 May 2002  
Over 9000 plants have been grown for the Laurent Perrier/Harpers and Queen Healing Garden, at the Chelsea Flower Show. Many of them at Manor Farm Nursery in Northamptonshire.

The weather has been playing havoc with the plants and the lives of Gordon Catlin and Jonathan Raeburn who are growing them. Many of the flora and fauna are having to be shuttled backwards and forwards between the poly and the shade tunnels and the open air, as the weather changes.
A few weeks ago Jinny Blom the garden's co designer with Prince Charles, introduced Womans hour to the plants and hidden delights in the garden.
