Alan Titchmarsh has been on a year long search for the best back gardens in Britain. In this brand new series he travels across Britain taking us over the hedges and through the gates of his 30 favourites.
In this episode, Alan reveals his 10 favourite challenging plots – amazing gardens that have been created despite restrictions in size, location or circumstances. From the tiniest pub garden to gardens that survive the harsh conditions of the UK’s most Northerly coast, these are the backyards of the most determined and obsessive British gardeners.
In episode two, Alan shows us his ten favourite working gardens. These are plots that do more than just look nice, they enhance the lives of their owners in other ways. From a vegetable garden grown to aid in the recovery of a cancer survivor to a Japanese garden built for meditation, we’ll hear amazing stories of gardens that are more than just a place for pretty flowers.
