Titchmarsh will this year be designing a feature garden at the world famous flower show for the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Britain in Bloom scheme, which is also celebrating its half century.

"I've got a great team. When you build a garden at Chelsea you're working with the big boys, it doesn't get more demanding, more testing than this. I want to give it the best shot," he said.

The garden follows a journey in horticulture from his birthplace in Yorkshire to the coast of the Isle of Wight where he has a home and garden.
