The show is attended by scores of VIPs and the Queen. Kieran's not used to painting flowers but he's undaunted.

I'm really excited. I think it's going to be a challenge that'll take me out of my comfort zone but I think it'll be good .

– Kieran Williamson

It would be something good to paint because they are an extension of the landscape and if I paint them well it'll help me in paintings that I do in the future.

He’ll be painting in the Hillier garden - the nursery is hoping to pick up its 73rd gold medal at this year's show.

Kieron's paintings from Chelsea will be auctioned online afterwards to raise money for The Wessex Cancer Trust.
