Most of our green fingered friends have their trays of seedlings of all types of plants lined up in their greenhouses or even on the kitchen windowsill. Cuttings are growing apace and there's a sense of excitement as we anticipate another Chelsea Flower Show starting on Monday 21 May, continuing for a week.  As a keen gardening journalist (among other things), I am looking forward to this annual event that has been popular for one hundred years.

To celebrate the amazing centenary of this most famous flower show in the world, the RHS has convened a panel of horticultural experts to select the top 10 plants launched at the Chelsea Flower since 1913; one for each of the past 10 years.

Ten amateur gardeners, each with a passion for a plant on the shortlist, have been chosen to explain why you should vote for their plant. These 'Plant Champions' were all born in the same decade that their plant was launched at Chelsea.
Watch them talking about their plant below and cast your vote. I will post the linking connection later today.
