This time in Love Your Garden episode 7 2015, Alan Titchmarsh and his team come to the aid of nonagenarian Roberta and her 86-year-old best friend and carer Enid, who live together in a retirement bungalow in Wiveliscombe, Somerset.
Originally from Liverpool, the two plucky pensioners have helped each other out countless times throughout the course of their friendship, which has lasted seven decades. However, they now find themselves trapped in their home by a treacherous slope in their garden, so Alan plans to set them free by designing a future-proofed garden in a vintage style.
Love Your Garden episode 7 2015
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.
