To celebrate the end of the first ever virtual Chelsea Flower Show, Matthew will be sharing his top tips on how to plant your very own botanical herb garden at home.

He’ll demonstrate how to plant and even take cuttings from herbs you can get from the supermarket to add to your window box or plant pots (or you could even upcycle a Slingsby Gin presentation box).

Handily, the herbs are hailed as perfect to add to a G&T or a Slingsby cocktail!
