Deep Purple Frontman Ian Gillan Plans Unlikely Showcase

(Classic Rock) In the most un-rock'n'roll story of the year so far, Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan has agreed to open a showcase garden at this year's Chelsea Flower Show in London.

What prompted Gillan to get involved? It's all down to a company called Sutton Seeds. The South West of England received an almighty battering during the bad weather of this past winter and Suttons Seeds - of Paignton, Devon - are keen to spread the word that the region has recovered from the storms.

"We will be celebrating 50 years of Britain In Bloom in the South West at Chelsea this year with a garden which has been inspired by the region," Suttons Seeds reveal. "With our garden we want to promote the fact that through all the crisis of flooding in the area recently, the South West is open for business and tourism." more on this story
