Britain's Best Garden: Could it be Yours?
To mark the 50th year of his horticultural career, Alan Titchmarsh is launching a nationwide search to find Britain's 30 best private gardens. These gardens will represent what gardening means to our nation. We love our grand, professionally run gardens in this country but this search is about celebrating our gardens – the people’s gardens. We are looking for gardens that say as much about us and who we really are as they do about the blooms, lawns and fragrant borders that decorate them. The search will honour and celebrate the nation’s most dedicated horticultural enthusiasts. The final 30 selected gardens will be revealed in three primetime, hour long shows, to air on ITV in 2015. We will film those gardens and a long-list of others throughout the summer months of 2014.
We are seeking applications from the length and breadth of Britain with an array of horticultural wonders from the outrageous to the draw-droopingly beautiful, the grand and opulent to the small and perfectly formed, from the wildest to the most the meticulous - this is the series that opens the gates to gardens that are works of art, labours of love, flights of fantasy and feats of engineering.
Do you know of any incredible gardens? Can you think of someone who has created a truly staggering and original outdoor space? We are looking for a variety of different types, styles, sizes and themes and at this stage have no pre-conceived idea of what Britain’s best private gardens looks like.
If you have someone’s garden in mind who you think could be right for the series let them know about the programme and pass on the below contact details.
