Highlights from the opening day of the world's most famous flower show, in which the grounds of Chelsea's Royal Hospital are transformed into breathtaking show gardens. The five-day event also boasts a series of smaller displays that act as a platform for up and coming designers, alongside the main attraction, the Great Pavilion. Join Alan Titchmarsh, Joe Swift and Carol Klein as they soak up all the excitement and heartache as the competition's best gardens are scrutinised by the RHS judges, and meet some of this year's exhibitors including Hillier Nurseries, who are hoping to win their 62nd consecutive gold medal.
