AWARD-WINNING gardener John Foley was walking tall at the Chelsea Flower Show – so much so that BBC Gardener’s World presenter Carol Klein had to stand on a box to talk to him!

The BBC Young Gardener of the Year was attending the prestigious RHS show on a personal invitation from the show manager Alex Denman.

John was able to get behind the ropes to view the spectacular gardens and chat with top designers Arne Maynard and Andy Sturgeon.

John told the Clitheroe Advertiser: “Chelsea is the show that all top gardeners wish to take part in. It was fantastic to see behind the scenes and meet such great designers, the future of English gardening looks terrific, I’m so proud to be a part of it.”
