Farming Today This Week: Chelsea Flower Show

Charlotte Smith visits the Chelsea Flower Show. We might be a nation of gardeners but do we still have a world class plant growing industry?

We might be a nation of gardeners but do we still have a world class plant growing industry? Charlotte Smith is at the Chelsea Flower Show. She hears about the journey many plants make before they arrive at a UK garden centre. Our specialist plant nurseries are still world beaters but some are wondering where the next generation of nurserymen and women will come from. Charlotte learns what it takes to grow the perfect daffodil for display at Chelsea. And if you think flowers are pretty but ultimately frivolous, we visit the garden meant to change your mind.

Presenter: Charlotte Smith
Producer: Sarah Swadling.
