The RHS Chelsea Flower Show will return this month with Sophie Raworth and Joe Swift again leading the BBC’s presenting line-up.
The annual gardening social event will be broadcast on BBC One from Sunday May 21, kicking off with a Countdown To Chelsea at 6pm.
Raworth, Swift and Monty Don will be on air for eight days of broadcasts on BBC One and BBC Two, where they will review and analyse this year’s garden designs and highlight the floral innovation on display.
They will be joined by Nicki Chapman and Angellica Bell, who will front the daytime coverage, offering viewers practical tips and advice on how to make the most of their gardens.
Presenters will also share money-saving gardening ideas and seasonal solutions to common problems.
Also returning this year are Dame Mary Berry, JJ Chalmers and Chris Balvin, as well as a range of gardening experts including Adam Frost, Frances Tophill and Arit Anderson.
Gardeners’ World presenter Sue Kent is also joining the 2023 line-up.
On Wednesday May 24 Raworth and Swift will launch the RHS People’s Choice Award on BBC One, with the winner being announced on the programme on Friday 26 at 7.30pm.
Commissioning editor for BBC daytime, Lindsay Bradbury, added: “A key theme of this year’s event will be making gardening cost-effective and accessible to all.
“I hope we can encourage more people to don their gardening gloves and get the best value out of their outdoor space.
“Our daytime coverage will provide helpful tips on how you can stay thrifty while flexing your green fingers.”
Coverage of this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show will begin on Sunday May 21 at 6pm and conclude with a 60-minute highlights show on Sunday May 28, also starting at 6pm.
