We're expecting the BBC to film again this week. John will be interviewed by James Wong, most likely for a Thursday or Friday evening slot, to be shown with earlier filming at the nursery.
Final arrangements are being made for the Hardy Plant Society stand at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Worcestershire Group is providing the display – with the theme of 60 plants for 60 years, to mark the diamond jubilee of the society. The circular, revolving stand was delivered to the Chelsea site on Tuesday, May 16 with the plants following on Thursday.
And you can look out for us on the BBC during Chelsea week.
They sent a production team to spend a day with us, filming members from the group to tell the back story to the exhibit and it is hoped that the five-minute film will be shown during the hour-long BBC daily highlights show. Exact details of which day have not been finalised – but currently it is hoped it will be shown on the Thursday evening of the show.
