Believe it or not, rocker 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."
