Everything’s loaded onto the lorry and headed Chelsea-wards. But there have been strange goings on amidst all the activity, and someone else wants to get in on the act.

Mis-gnomer. Borage on the tail lift

Spot the infiltrator. Not one to miss out on the world’s greatest flower show, Borage the Gnome, in his guise as a Pennyroyal plant, has made it onto the tailift. Famously banned from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2009, this naughty gnome is a rebel with a cause.

Borage, nestling amongst the Black Pansies on the Chelsea lorry. Made it.

Last seen, travelling up the M4, in the direction of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Please report any sightings to Jekka and the team on our Pavilion Way stand, PW30. Thank you.

  1. What’s the plant that’s twenty times sweeter than sugar? My mum saw Jekka mention it on the BBC Chelsea programme and she’s dying to get hold of some!
