This time in Love Your Garden episode 2 2017, 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.
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.
Love Your Garden episode 2 2017
Alan Titchmarsh travels around the country seeking out some of Britain’s loveliest domestic gardens. He will be focusing not on celebrated public gardens, but on the wonderful outdoor living spaces created by ordinary Britons.
Alan looks at how these beautiful gardens – from cottage gardens to traditional rose gardens – have been created, and helps viewers understand how they can get a similar effect in their own spaces. He is helped along the way by a team of experts who will be passing on their own particular wisdom.
Food expert Valentine Warner has tips for those who are hoping to grow their own, wildlife expert Charlotte Uhlenbroek reveals how to encourage (or discourage) insects and animals into the garden, garden designer Matt James has ideas on getting the look right and Laetitia Maklouf demonstrates how to get the most out of the tiniest of spaces, whether they be a conservatory or a single window box.
Love Your Garden is a British gardening programme that was first broadcast on ITV on 10 June 2014. The show is hosted by Alan Titchmarsh alongside co-presenters David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill and sees the team visit locations around the United Kingdom helping people to transform their gardens.
