Garden Rescue episode 21 2020 – Wrexham: Joanna and Robert only picked up the keys to their house in a brand new Wrexham development just days before the Garden Rescue team turned up. They have called in Charlie and the Rich brothers to create a family garden from scratch – that is, from bare earth and builders’ rubble!
The family have a £6,500 budget to create a garden with a real wow factor, and they have their eyes on dramatic planting, big architectural features and a swanky hot tub area.
Garden Rescue episode 21 2020 – Wrexham
Dimmock first came to the public’s attention in 1997, when she joined the BBC gardening series Ground Force, five years after first meeting the producer/director of the series when she built a pond for the Meridian series, Grass Roots. Dimmock co-presented Ground Force for the eight years it aired. She became known for appearing braless on shows. Calendars featuring her likeness outsold lingerie model Caprice Bourret, and fans nicknamed her horticultural Viagra.
Since then, she has presented such programmes as The Joy of Gardening and Charlie’s Garden Army, as well as presenting coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show. In 2004, she appeared in the Channel 4 reality TV show, The Games. She has also appeared on American television, presenting a gardening slot on The Early Show on CBS. In September 2006, she appeared on the BBC’s Celebrity MasterChef.
During the mid-2000s, after Ground Force had ceased production, she presented a local ITV Meridian series entitled River Walks, in which she walked along various rivers in Southern England, visiting landmarks and attractions along the way as well as meeting people who live and work on the rivers.
Since founding their garden design company Rich Landscapes in 2013 and becoming the youngest team to win gold at the RHS Chelsea Flower show in 2015, the pair have become known for their clean, modern lines, naturalistic planting and cheery, down-to-earth disposition. All of which has brought them projects with fashion houses Chanel and Massimo Dutti, Hampshire hotel Heckfield Place and residential enthusiasts across Europe – as well as a book deal and several television spots on the BBC.
