I make a brief appearance on ITV’s Love Your Garden tonightPosted by Fiona Nevile in Cottage tales | 29 comments
Do you remember that Danny and I were beavering away in April and May tarting up the cottage and garden? It had needed sorting out for quite some time. I am naturally untidy, prone to leaving things lying around. Danny is King of Weeding the Gravel and I’m Queen of everything else in the garden so I couldn’t blame him for the mess.
This major shake up was prompted by the imminent arrival of Valentine Warner and a TV crew. They would film a snippet in my garden for the food slot in tonight’s Love Your Garden on ITV. We had about three weeks to prepare and set a lot of other projects on hold.
Our Solar Tunnel really came into its own as it was full of plants started from seed earlier in the year. But there was still masses of work to do from reseeding parts of the lawn, weeding and hacking to painting the big front gate.
Our slot on tonight’s programme is just a few minutes. We really enjoyed the filming day – it was fun and relaxed.
The other bonus is that our front garden no longer looks like the set of Steptoe and Son.
So if you’d like a peek at our garden, tune in tonight to ITV1 at 8 o’clock!
