24th Gold for Johnny Walkers, Guy Hands with Gemma Arterton, Scotts win Best Discovery Exhibit and other show highlights
Johnny Walkers (above) won a 24th consecutive Gold Medal for his display of Taylors daffodils, which means he has to come back next year to try for a 25th.
Guy Hands and Gemma Arterton, who will be filming the new film about Vita Sackville-West in Kent this summer, attracted one of he biggest paparazzi crowds on the Burncoose Garden.
Scotts Miracle-Gro won Best Discovery exhibit in The Great Pavillion
and in our opinion, purple was the dominant planting colour theme for Chelsea 2017.
