Grenada's gardeners and their award-winning flowers


The people of the eastern Caribbean island of Grenada have had good reason to celebrate this summer.

The island won its first-ever gold medal at the London Olympics, and its horticulturists also struck gold for the 10th time at the UK's prestigious Chelsea Flower show.

Contributions to the winning garden came from growers all over the island and the event is an important tourism platform, showing that there's a lot more than sun, sea and sand on offer.

Fast Track travelled to Grenada to meet some of the team behind the island's prize-winning flowers.
