Colin writes:  " One of my favourites photos of Chelsea Flower Show, the four amigos!
I was humbled and honoured to be invited to the Presidents lunch.
To sit and chat with my great friends Ian Le Gros - Head of site at RHS Hyde Hall, Johnathan Webster -Curator at RHS Rosemoor and Paul Cook -Curator at RHS Harlow Carr was very special.
Over the years we’ve had great fun, a few late nights and many adventures!"

Hardly ever does the BBC show rock plants at Chelsea - some from Kevock in past years, if we're lucky!!
