To coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show, we've chosen the best classical pieces about buds, blossoms, and blooms, celebrating the beauty of the natural world.
One of Alan Titchmarsh's favourite flower-inspired pieces, this beautiful duet from Delibes opera Lakmé continues to be popular, after shooting into public consciousness when it was featured on the British Airways advert. At this point in the opera, Lakmé and her servant Mallika sing as they gather flowers by a river. And a fact for flower fans: this picture shows not a Flower Duet, but a 'Duet' flower - it's known as the Dahlia 'Duet' variety.
