Liam Gallagher - Liam Gallagher is mad for plants

Liam Gallagher loves gardening.

The Beady Eye frontman has asked for tickets to a VIP preview day of the Chelsea Flower Show - an annual gardening extravaganza held in London - on the same day Britain's Queen Elizabeth is due at the event, which runs from May 21-25.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Liam is one of the most unlikely guests in the event's history.

''His rampaging days are definitely over - which is a relief to organisers given the importance of some guests.''

Liam, 40, will rub shoulders will several other green-fingered musicians at the event including rocker Rod Stewart, Beatles legend Ringo Starr and singer Lily Allen.

The singer - who famously sang ''Maybe, I don't really want to know, how your garden grows, cause I just want to fly'' on Oasis' hit 'Live Forever' - is not the only member of his family with a penchant for plants.

Brother Noel Gallagher also enjoys gardening and recently admitted he will be spending a lot more time cultivating and planting when he retires.

When asked if he had any plans to call time on his music career, the 45-year-old guitarist replied: ''As long as I enjoy it I'll do it, and when I stop enjoying it I'll go and do some gardening or something, but I genuinely enjoy the process of writing songs and doing all this, I love all this.

''You know, it's like I was on the dole for seven years, the novelty of this still hasn't worn off for me, you know, it's great, it's a great gig.''
