Next Episode of Love Your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh is
Love Your Garden – with Alan Titchmarsh follows the writer, broadcaster and TV personality as he travels the country with a team of esteemed experts to find some of Britain's most beautiful domestic gardens and show viewers how to recreate the look themselves – with minimum fuss.
Gardening guru Alan Titchmarsh and his team of experts head to Eastleigh near Southampton to transform an uninviting patch of uneven lawn into a cruise ship-inspired pleasure garden, complete with a patio shaped like the prow of a boat. They do this as a thank you to extraordinary nurse Rosie Mitchell and her hard-working family. Rosie has been a paediatric nurse for over 30 years, and has consistently gone above and beyond the regular duties of a carer. The grandmother's unique empathy and support for her young patients and their families in the most difficult of circumstances have made a difference to thousands. Not satisfied with that as a full time job, she has also set up a charity that has raised over 1.5 million pounds for the paediatric intensive care unit in Southampton. The money has purchased ambulances, incubators and has saved many lives.
The garden Makeover team, headed by gardening guru Alan Titichmarsh are in Durham this week to create a show-stopping final garden of the series for a family in need.
When 39-year-old local lad Philip Hunter discovered he had a terminal cancer he got in touch to ask the team to build a special garden for him, his wife Sam and two boys, Ethan (14) and Josh (9) to enjoy in his final years.
His eldest son and keen amateur naturalist Ethan is profoundly deaf so Philip was especially keen for their garden to be a place where he could safely pursue his specific interests – namely wildlife.
Sadly, much sooner than was expected, Philip died in January this year – leaving his whole family distraught. Understanding how important the garden was to Philip, Alan and the team decided to go ahead and create the garden he would have wanted for them all. The team get super-creative this week and by using some clever design, fill the modestly sized plot with breathe-taking features and wonderful details which the family love.
