Johnny Marr plant shortlisted at Chelsea Flower Show

Ex-Smiths and Cribs guitarist takes to Twitter to announce the news

A plant dedicated to Johnny Marr has been shortlisted for the Flower Of The Year award at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The former Smiths and Cribs guitar legend announced the news on his Twitter page, and posted a picture of himself and the ‘Johnny Marr Plant’‘s creator Matthew Soper at the London bash. This year’s flower event started today (May 24) in the capital and will wrap up on May 28.

Marr is currently working on a new album under The Healers name following his exit from The Cribs earlier this year. The ex-Smiths legend released his only previous Healers album, ‘Boomslang’, in 2003. He is currently assembling a new line-up of the band for the record.

He is also working on his autobiography and music for TV and film projects.
