This comes after fellow garden expert Alan Titchmarsh hit out at the Chelsea Flower show for ‘shooting itself in the foot’.
The presenter and gardener hit out at the annual event after the wheelchair accessible Horatio's Garden won the top prize.
Medals are awarded at the The Chelsea Flower Show in each garden category, which include Show Gardens, Sanctuary Gardens, Balcony Gardens as well as Container Gardens.
However Alan, 74, slammed this year's show in an article for Country Life and said he thinks the gardeners themselves are being put under pressure to "pander to to current trends".
"To allow one garden predicated on no intervention from Man to be considered Best in Show is risky, but should it happen again then a society devoted to and predicated on passing on horticultural skills could legitimately be accused of shooting itself in the foot."
He added: "The judges of the show gardens need to remember that the thousands who attend the show enjoy beautiful plants and gardens they feel they want to be in even more than off-the-wall design ideas that are regarded as ‘cutting edge’.
"Yes; we need refreshing ideas, but at the heart of this show should be a celebration of gardening. I really hope that my 55th Chelsea Flower Show proves that to be the case."
