Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh episode 6: Alan is joined this week by two of his Hampshire neighbours, actress Sarah Parish and property expert Phil Spencer. He also meets online gardening sensation Huw Richards and Adrian Thomas of the RSPB, and carpenter Vikkie Lee is back with a new upcycling build. Plus, tips from Clodagh McKenna’s garden at Highclere.
Alan Titchmarsh hosts this enjoyable magazine show from his Hampshire home – or rather from his barn that’s been dressed using recycled or reclaimed items and local handicrafts.
Love Your Weekend 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. Titchmarsh has been married to Alison since 1975 and they have two children, Polly (born 1979) and Camilla (born 1981). In addition to his extensive television and writing work, Titchmarsh is also trustee of his own charity, ‘Gardens for Schools’, and others, including ‘Seeds for Africa’.
