From his mobile potting shed table, gardener Hugh Bushey Babcock shares his green fingered secrets on how to grow prize winning, psychic plants. There is a choice between: Daphne the Daffodil, Saskia the Sunflower and Leia the Leek.

With a little audience participation they use psychic plant power to deduce people’s favourite vegetables. There is also a demonstration of the giant carrot chopper (not for the faint hearted) and they miraculously raise a drooping rose from almost certain death.

So whether you choose the beautiful Daffodil, perfect for Mother’s day and Easter parades, the ever optimistic Sunflower spreading sunshine all year round or the luscious giant Leek, they are guaranteed to be best in show!
