You might be wondering what this has to do with ballet. Well, Ballet News is famous for mixing ballet with life, and gardening is no exception. There are plants named after ballet dancers such as Darcey Bussell, who has a beautiful rose named after her, and on press day, today, you’ll find well known people from all walks of life visiting the show, including of course, HM The Queen.
There’s likely to be much interest in Prince Harry’s garden for his charity Sentebale, called the B&Q Sentebale Forget-Me-Not garden, designed by Ginny Blom.
