Alan’s Garden Secrets – Alan Titchmarsh takes a personal journey through the gardens that he passionately believes have most influenced British gardening heritage.
From the rigid uniformity of the 17th-century garden, where man’s control over nature was paramount, to the sweeping landscapes of Capability Brown, Alan explores a showpiece garden each week that is a prime example of a key movement in gardening history.
Revealing the story behind their creation, he meets the people that maintain these gardens today and learns the secret of their success.
Alan also visits other great gardens and talks to gardeners that have taken these groundbreaking ideas and developed them further. He then rolls up his sleeves and demonstrates how to achieve the effects of the master gardeners at home.
