RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016
Simon had a packed diary at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Monday 23rd was most exciting as Simon created the royal posies as he did last year. But this year, he was filmed doing so by the BBC. Helping him create the posies was Tavesha Steele, 6 years old, from Angell Town in Brixton. Angell Town is part of the Greening Grey Britain campaign by the RHS. Tavesha presented HMThe Queen, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie with a bouquet of flowers at the Green Grey Britain Garden designed by Anne Marie Powell.
Tuesday saw Simon acting as a roving reporter live on The Jo Good Show on BBC Radio London from 1pm–4pm. Simon has many contacts and supporters at Chelsea and this provides a golden opportunity to chat to the many diverse contributors who make up this incredible week.
Then, after being interviewed himself on national radio on Thursday, Simon returns to Chelsea on Friday to be filmed with Nicki Chapman for the BBC and he'll be creating the 'Best of Chelsea' in a vase.
Simon also created the amazing floral displays on the Daily Telegraph stands.
