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.
In the first of this new series, Alan Titchmarsh and the team head to Plymouth to create a show-stopping contemporary garden for an outstanding ex-Marine, Mark Ormrod, 36, and his young family. Despite tragically losing both his legs and an arm in Afghanistan in an IED incident, Mark made a remarkable recovery and has become an inspiration to injured veterans everywhere.
This time Alan Titchmarsh and the team head to Manchester to turn a concrete patch of dismal cracked pavers and hard edges in to a beautiful classic cottage garden. The transformation is for Salford born identical twins Rita and Betty Mills (87).
Alan Titchmarsh and the team head to Chandlers Ford near Eastleigh in Hampshire this week to turn a neglected suburban back garden into a woodland-style retreat complete with a rustic sunken outdoor living room.The garden is for the Richardson family who are facing a very difficult future. After several very challenging years, father of two, Jason has been taken off the heart and kidney transplant list and survives only by the means of a heavy portable external machine which keeps his heart working and three weekly sessions of kidney dialysis. This means the whole family are now tied very much to their home and desperately need an outdoor space on their doorstep that can become an escape.
