Love Your Garden Ep.4 - Series 7 2017

 This week Alan and the team create a garden like no other they've done before.
 The team head to Shrewsbury in Shropshire to meet Air Ambulance heroine Gina Constable.  The former nurse's dedication to this vital life-saving service is unprecedented. For over 21 years she has helped raise more than a quarter of a million pounds - a figure which works out at over 100 life-saving air ambulance missions.


  To this day, despite crippling arthritis, she remains one of the Services most dedicated fundraisers and will often take her mind off her painful joints by knitting charity soft toys - even through the night.Inspired by the wishes of her late husband Tony, who was equally dedicated to fundraising for the Air Ambulance, the Love Your Garden team build her a breathtaking Japanese garden.
 The team share the tricks to creating a little piece of Japan in your own back yard - from transforming a run-down summerhouse into an authentic Japanese Tea House, to creating cloud-pruned trees and the low down on planting and caring for Japanese maples. The attention to detail is exceptional.

 The team head to Chandlers Ford in Hampshire to help the Richardson family, who are facing a very difficult future. Father of two Jason survives only by the means of a portable external machine which keeps his heart working and three weekly sessions of kidney dialysis. The whole family are now tied to their home and desperately need an outdoor space on their doorstep that can become an escape.

Love Your Garden Ep.2 - Series 7 2017

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).


The twins have lived together in Salford for all of their lives, and since surviving some of the worst WWII bombings this country has seen, as lifelong parishioners of Salford Cathedral, they have never wavered in devoting their lives to helping others.

It was their friends and family from the Cathedral that got in touch with the programme.  They felt that when the sisters moved to their new bungalow for health reasons – the one thing they really deserved and desperately needed was an outdoor space on their doorstep – to match their own outgoing and sunny personalities.  Alan believes this was the worst gardens he’d ever seen in the series and therefore, couldn’t resist the challenge. He and the team share all the tips and tricks that will help you turn even the most modest of urban yards into a cottage style retreat.

Alan has always said that if you really want to understand Britain’s obsession with its backyards you have to go beyond the stately homes and national trust properties, and instead look at the suburban gardens, inner city spaces and country village plots of the average Brit. No matter what size, shape or location of our gardens, or size of our budget, we go to extraordinary lengths to make the most of them.
Each episode counts down 10 gardens from 10 to 1 and Alan has divided up his choices into three categories.
