QUESTION OF THE DAY: It’s National Sandwich Week – what is your favourite filling?

At last years Chelsea Flower Show, Diarmuid Gavin's green fingers turned his design into gold as he won the top award for his creation. He's reaching for the stars with his submission this year, as it towers a massive eighty feet above ground. He’ll reveal his inspiration and give some top gardening tips.


It is believed that John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, invented the sandwich in 1762 after asking for beef between two slices of bread so he did not have to leave his card game.
