Call us homosexual, call us irresponsible, but we do love a flower. Which is why come this time of the year, as well as booking our annual boys’ jolly to Mykonos and drawing up options for our summer wardrobe, we openly consider buying tickets for the Chelsea Flower Show. The great and the good and the fragrant of the garden design world are thrown together in the hallowed grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, to compare ‘n’ contrast ‘n’ compete for one of the Royal Horticultural Society’s medals, which do wonders to bump up sales and perhaps even get them a presenting gig on Gardeners’ World. Kicking off this Tuesday 24th (Monday’s for Her Maj and very IPs only), it carries on till Saturday 28th – though tickets are like fairy dust, so you may have to pull in some favours if you want to get past the gates. We know we do.
