BLOOMING marvels Richard and Sheena Drane are about to fulfil an ambition of many a gardener - by exhibiting at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Mr and Mrs Drane, from Pembroke Farm Nursery at Barway, will be competing for the attention of judges in the cacti and succulents class in the world's premier flower show, which starts on Monday.

It is their first visit to the show, although they have been exhibiting at shows across the country since they opened the nursery six years ago.

Mr Drane said a hectic time was in store. "We've got the Devon Country Show on Saturday and then we will travel through the night to be at Chelsea on Sunday.

"It's very exciting for us - Chelsea is the top show in the world.
