The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the premier summer show in the UK. There is fevered competition for the medals in all the classes, none more so than the Show Garden designs. One of the more controversial gardeners is Diarmuid Gavin who is notorious for his wacky designs. His past creations include a floating pod and a scaffold tower manned by Chelsea Pensioners. Gavin’s garden for 2016 is shown above and includes Heath Robinson-inspired machinery to make his plants bob and twirl.
