Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll journey to the Chelsea Flower Show, arriving by mid afternoon. We'll remain here until 8.00pm, so you'll have plenty of time to search for inspiration. Wander the show gardens, examine the rare and unusual plants in the spectacular Floral Pavilions, and seek out advice from the gardening experts.
Today we head to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.
