Golden Jubilee Plant

The Gardeners' World 50th anniversary celebrations are hotting up - as part of the celebrations Gardeners' World are looking for the plant which has had the biggest impact on gardens over the past 50 years with the winner being named as the Golden Jubilee Plant.

All ten nominated plants will be on display in a  beautiful and inspiring gallery at BBC Gardeners' World Live curated by BBC Gardeners' World Magazine editor David Hurrion.

There will be a public vote in May and, as Monty Don says, "the result will be announced at our big anniversary bash at BBC Gardeners' World Live this June". The winner will be unveiled on screen as part of 1-hour anniversary programme on Friday 16 June, by Mary Berry.
