      Who’d have a garden like this?

      WHAT would the Daleks make of this?

      This is the first glimpse of a garden designed to
      mark Doctor Who’s links with Cardiff, which will
      go on display at the Chelsea Flower Show.

      The design, featuring a lifesize Tardis with
      lights and sound effects, also includes a 1960s
      Cardiff rugby shirt and a Doctor Who annual whose
      cover star is the original Doctor, William Hartnell.

      And the famous police box, complete with flashing
      lights and sound effects, is the centrepiece of
      the display, which is named A Garden In Time and
      based around the birth of the series in 1963.

      Created by Cardiff council landscape officer Mo
      Dorken and her team, one half of the site shows a
      1960s urban garden, while the other half is based
      around modern gardening ideas and styles.

      “The Chelsea Flower Show is iconic and attracts
      great attention and thousands of visitors from
      around the world,” said Coun Nigel Howells,
      Cardiff council’s executive member for sport, leisure and culture.

      “We are proud that Cardiff will be represented
      there, and I’m sure A Garden In Time will do justice to the city and to Wales.”

      Cardiff’s latest appearance at the Chelsea Flower
      Show follows its success in claiming the Royal
      Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom title
      two years ago and being awarded the gold medal at
      the Entente Florale competition last year.

      Filming of Doctor Who – which stars Scottish
      actor David Tennant as the new Timelord –
      switched to Cardiff in 2005 and became a massive
      hit with viewers, spawning a successful spin-off, Torchwood.
