Thanks for all the great tips!
I think the weather at Chelsea will dictate show gardens or marquee first but I am hoping to get there first thing ... possibly as soon as it opens (8am?).. and that particular trip is by myself so I only have myself to blame if I cant walk at the end of the day although its a train ride home not driving.
In terms of GW Live its a belated mothers day gift my mum was ill on the day itself so hopefully I will make up for it at the NEC. But we will take it easy at that show so the plan is turn up early... see Carol Klein in the morning theatre event then see where the day takes us.
I like the idea of a picnic amongst the show gardens... and must remember hard cash and notebook and camera! I am not averse to new gadgets and every so often when I see Monty or Carol buying something new in a feature on bbc2 gardeners world I get green with envy and then go off hunting down a plant that isn't in my usual nurseries I frequent! So can't wait to see all that's available!
Definitely on the countdown now ... I can't wait!
