Flowers and Celebrities Under One RoofSome of the VIP guests include Katherine Jenkins, Stephen Fry and Dame Helen Mirren. The show officially opens on Tuesday but these celebrities got to have a bit of a sneak peek at what is awaiting guests.

This year’s show is going to be host to a lot of unusual flower gardens, some will not even include flowers, like the garden that TV presenter James May has presented. His garden will probably get a lot of attention as it is made up entirely of plasticine.

There are nearly one hundred exhibits at the show and 42 gardens competing.

Though a majority of the gardens will be of a more traditional kind there are several that are going to break the mold, this might not sit well with some judges. May says, “They’re a bit sniffy about it, some of them, because they think it’s improper, but I think it’s best in show. It’s broken the mold. I don’t think it’s an insult to gardening – we’re not trying to pass it off as a garden, it’s taking its inspiration from gardens. It’s relatively low-maintenance. Plasticine flowers don’t die, and you don’t get weeds,” he added.
