During Friday’s episode of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the presenter revealed one of his closely guarded secrets.

While admiring the incredible creations at the country’s most popular social event with a green thumb, he explained that it takes several elements to create a beautiful garden.

In addition to colorful plants and flowers, according to Joe, the British should also integrate different materials into their designs.

He told viewers, “You can’t just get inspiration from plants.” Chelsea – Designers spent hours working on the finishing touches to make their gardens stand out.

“When I design gardens, especially small city gardens, I often look for materials that help blur the space between indoors and outdoors.”

The gardening expert then pointed to a tiled garage wall behind him before revealing the benefits these bring.

Joe continued, “These tiles work really well, you can imagine having them in your kitchen and carrying them out into the garden.”

“They’re also great for covering a garage wall or a concrete wall, you can just knock them straight open.”

But he claims tiles can also bring a much-needed dose of light to gloomy gardens across the country.

Joe explained that it’s “important” to choose the right color tile for your space, recommending that people opt for light shades if their garden is dark and shady.

This more muted color scheme will help “reflect” the light in the garden, added the Chelsea Flower Show host.

And this cheap and cheerful trick could cost you as little as £2.

Online retail giant Shein has self-adhesive outdoor tiles to help implement Joe’s clever idea.

The Floor sticker with stone pattern could be the perfect decoration for your dimly lit garden that also gives it a little more depth.

While intrigued by this year’s garden designs, fans of the Chelsea Flower Show were also enthralled by Monty Don.

He was described as “perfectly fit” by viewers who were distracted by the presenter’s dapper manner.
