Gardener Paul Davis, from Glemsford, is preparing to head to the Chelsea Flower Show where he will film footage of the show gardens and hopefully catch up with some famous faces. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic this year will be the first time the show will take place in September and Mr Davis, 57, says the festival, usually held in May, will have a "different vibe". 

 Mr Davis known as the 'Garden Warrior'  appeared as a topiary expert on the Jeremey Vine on 5' show earlier this year and hopes the footage he films at Chelsea will be used in a new television show next year.

He said: "I am talking to people behind the scenes, it is all boiling on the stove at the moment and I am waiting for it all to kick off. 

"At Chelsea we are going to be doing interviews, filming of the show gardens and some of the stuff going on in the tents."

Though he is unable to give much away about who he might be interviewing, he added: " The series is going to be based on mental health and how your garden helps you through your mental illness."
