How does The Big Flower Fight work?

Vic Reeves summed it up as: 'It’s not Gardeners’ World. It’s punk rock gardening...a lot of the people here could be in bands. It looks like a documentary about some rock and rollers instead of gardeners. It’s really good.'

In each episode, the 10 pairs taking part are given a different theme by which to make their flower creation. Themes include Sea Creatures', 'Green Giants', and 'Fabulous Floral Fashion'.

Similarly to Bake Off, the teams' creations are judged, and one pair is eliminated in each episode.
