Joining them from the world’s largest annual flower show are a host of green-fingered experts including Carol Klein, Adam Frost, Toby Buckland and Nick Bailey, who will be guiding us through the show gardens and floral exhibits.

Later in the week, Toby looks at how to design the perfect family garden, Joe chats to a designer inspired by the Mr Men books, and Frances Tophill demonstrates how to create blooming summer containers.

If you are feeling inspired, watch out for Carol on Friday when she will explain what to plant this weekend for instant impact.
