Take inspiration from the Feel Good Gardens at the 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower show is here! This year the Feel Good Gardens, sponsored by BBC Radio 2, are designed to encourage use of the five senses, focusing on the themes of taste, scent, colour, texture and listening. So, inspired by Chelsea, here are my favourite plants for each of the five senses, all of which can be planted in pots to bring new sensory dimensions to your urban garden.

Create an urban serenity garden

The practice of meditation and mindfulness as a means to combat the stress and frantic pace of modern life, particularly in cities, has surged in popularity in recent years. This week, I'm focusing on how you can create an urban serenity garden which provides a peaceful, tranquil haven from city life - and an excellent place to practice meditation or yoga.
