Monty Don interviews Derek Heathcote at the Chelsea Flower Show 2015

The BBC visited our nursery a few weeks before Chelsea and filmed in our greenhouse, although there were very few flowers out at that time, Monty Don then came to our display at Chelsea and finished off the filming with me. It was amazing how many cameras, sound crew etc. descended around our display.

Introduced in 2014 :: Helen Millar
     
This lovely sweet pea was named after Helen Millar. Sadly Helen passed away in 2012 from Motor Neurone Disease but her memory will live on in her favourite flower. This sweet pea was bred by Andy Beane and has large blooms on stout stems and is excellent for cutting and exhibition.   Helen Dyson, who named the Sweet Pea after her friend of 50 years, at the release of the new variety at Chelsea Flower Show 2014.
