Grow Your Own At Home With Alan Titchmarsh episode 6
Alan Fred Titchmarsh is an English gardener, broadcaster, poet, and novelist. After working as a professional gardener and a gardening journalist, he established himself as a media personality through appearances on gardening programmes. He has developed a diverse writing and broadcasting career.
Titchmarsh’s first few television appearances were on the long-running BBC television show Nationwide as a horticulture expert. This led to his being invited to present coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show for BBC television in 1983. Titchmarsh hosted this every year until 2013.
In 1996 the cancellation of Pebble Mill at One gave Titchmarsh the opportunity to move back towards his first love, gardening, and he took over as host of another long-running BBC television programme, Gardeners’ World in the same year, the show being filmed in his own garden.
