Story of Chelsea Flower Show pioneer blossoms on the big screen

Back in 2002, Mary Reynolds took the gardening world by storm, becoming the youngest ever winner of a gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Against all the odds, she went on to become a pioneer in her field and is now the subject of a new film called Dare To Be Wild.

The feature was a labour of love for first-time filmmaker Vivienne De Courcy who spent more than a decade trying to get it made after meeting Mary Reynolds and falling in love with her story.

Dare to Be Wild is released on September 23.
