Monty Don works with amateur gardeners up and down the country to transform their spaces.
Monty Don helps gardeners transform their outdoor spaces. In Leyton, Tariq and Sairah want to turn their dumping ground of a back yard into a sumptuous award-winning garden, suitable for entertaining friends and family. Both have competitive jobs in the banking sector and are used to winning at work but when it comes to gardening, they don't know where to begin. Can they put the work in to earn the approval of the country's top gardener? In Bath, Ant and Jake want to replicate the Japanese gardens they have visited all over the world and set themselves the added challenge of creating three very different sections in their L-shaped plot. However, events take a dramatic turn when they discover an underlying problem with their soil that calls for an extreme solution.
Monty Don travels around the country helping amateurs to create the garden of their dreams. This time, Monty meets two sets of gardeners who have unimaginable ambitions for their outdoor spaces.
In Essex, Denise has never ventured beyond the decking area behind her house. But she dreams of having an altogether dreamlike garden, including building the ruins of a mill to remind her of her childhood. Her husband Dave isn't quite as enthusiastic about any of it, not least the amount of work involved, so Monty is called in to mediate.
Meanwhile in Ipswich, father-and-daughter team Rob and Jo run a family charity together and are no strangers to hard labour. It's just as well, because their plan to build a productive terraced allotment on a treacherously steep slope in the middle of a wooded wasteland leaves Monty lost for words. But with a bit of advice and the help of an army of volunteers, can they go from mad to possible?
Monty Don travels around the country helping amateurs to create the garden of their dreams. This week, he comes to the rescue of two couples in need of help transforming their rubble-filled back gardens into havens of peace and tranquillity.
In north London, Ian and Rose have recently moved into their new basement home and are hoping to create a wildlife-friendly space. Currently it is a building site - neglected by previous owners. They also need expert advice since their plot is surrounded by four large trees blocking a lot of natural sunlight. Even if they manage to clear their space, can they ever create the garden of their dreams? They are in serious need of help and advice, but can Monty set them on the right track?
Meanwhile in Stockport, Jo and Steve's equally large garden has become a dump as they build a new extension. The couple lead busy working lives with Jo travelling the globe as an air hostess and Steve working long night shifts at a bakery. Their longed-for dream is a haven to relax and get away from it all in. The problem is Jo has so many exciting ideas about what she wants to do and Steve is rather more pragmatic. Can Monty help the couple work out the best of their ideas and give them the advice they need to get going?
Monty Don helps gardeners transform their outdoor spaces. Monty visits two sets of ambitious gardeners, each facing challenges on a very different scale.
