Gardeners’ World star Monty Don has revealed when fans will get to see his renovated garden on the show. The 68-year-old took to Instagram to share an update with his 1.2 million followers after fans have been eagerly anticipating seeing the work on the BBC series.
Alongside a picture of his back garden from his home, Monty explained his renovation plans and teased a date with his fans. He wrote: “Digger booked for Monday morning to take out the stumps. Path will be widened and relaid, borders thoroughly cleared and replanting shared when GW returns on March 15.”
Fans were sad to see the trees taken out in order for room to be made for a new planting space, as they lamented over the previous look for Monty’s garden.
One person wrote: “Incredible how different it looks… sad but it happens and that is the beauty of gardening… the constant reinvention.”
Another expressed: “Unfortunately nothing lasts forever but looking forward to the future planting.” While a third Instagram user said: “Sad to see, but renewal time,” and a fourth added: “Sad to see them all gone but there’s always another good day ahead in gardening.”
Despite fans being sad about the garden’s rebranding, they were excited about seeing the work take place on the BBC show.
An excited social media user penned: “Magic words – GW 15 March,” with a green heart emoji.
Somebody else said: “Return of Gardeners World…. music to my ears!!!,” and yet another wrote: “Looking forward to GW! A new start.”
The gardening expert previously sparked concern with his fans after sharing a photo of his flooded garden in January.
The presenter had been severely affected by Storm Henk, which battered most of southern Britain.
Monty uploaded a number of photos on Instagram of his flooded garden, which showed the impact of the storm.
One photo showed his pond completely submerged underwater, and another showed his garden completely flooded.
He captioned the first image: “There is a pond somewhere under all that water,” whilst in his second post he said: “Wet has just got wetter.”
