Actress Jane Asher tells Scotts Miracle-Gro’s Paul Patton what makes her feel good about gardening

BBC TV weather girl Carol Kirkwood reveals how gardening and the weather give her a thrill

Scotts Miracle-Gro is supporting the Gold Medal winning display by Hillier Nurseries and Garden Centres at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Hillier MD Andrew McIndoe and his team have built a breath-taking display on the prestigious Monument site in The Great Pavilion. And, as expected, the display won Andy and the team their 66th consecutive Gold Medal. The design uses fantastic plant combinations in several separate areas using the theme of ‘Feel Good about Gardening’.

Scotts Miracle-Gro video experts are on hand on the display to film show-goers and record their personal reflections on what makes them feel good about gardening. The idea is to capture the satisfying events or pleasures in gardening that give a lift of spirit or provide a personal feel-good factor. Perhaps it’s a plant nurtured into bloom or a flower perfume that is a reminder of times gone past. Perhaps it’s the satisfaction of encouraging a child to enjoy new tastes of home-grown food, or simply five minutes in the garden enjoyed at peace with mind, body and soul.

We will post a selection of these magical gardening moments here on the LoveTheGarden website. We’ve already recorded the feelings of several celebrities visiting Chelsea. So, if you’re going to Chelsea Flower Show, make sure you visit the garden and let us know your personal gardening feel-good factor.
