love your garden s02.

Series repack.

Alan Titchmarsh and his team return with a new series of the gardening show, which helps people create their dream outdoor space.

This week, he surprises Louise from Hampshire, who is suffering from a life-threatening illness. The team set to work creating a stunning Japanese-style garden for her. Alan looks for inspiration at an amazing oriental garden called the Apple Court while Katie Rushworth searches for dramatic Japanese plants and Francis Tophill plants different varieties of bamboo.


Alan Titchmarsh and his team are in the Brecon Beacons where they attempt to create a garden suitable for a big family. Rob and Rachel Jones have five children, including an autistic son and a daughter with cerebral palsy. The couple particularly want a space where the whole family can all gather together. Alan gets some inspiration from a wonderful family garden in Monmouthshire with winding paths while he sets David Domoney onto the task of creating similar pathways, and building a bespoke stone barbecue to match the house. He also orders a huge gazebo where the family can gather for those special outdoor occasions, and gets some sensory plants which are particularly good for children with special needs.

Alan Titchmarsh and the team are in Barking, where they hope they can coax 90-year-old Iris back into her garden. Since her husband died, the garden has become neglected, but Iris longs to have somewhere to sit and smell the scent of the roses. David Domoney constructs the perfect pathway, while Katie Rushworth sets to work finding a variety of rose which is wildlife-friendly and Frances Tophill creates a summer house full of memories.


Alan Titchmarsh and the team transform a large garden that once played a central role in a family's life but became neglected following a personal tragedy. Wendy and Graham Pott's son Matt was killed in a hit-and-run accident three years ago, after which the devastated couple sank into a deep depression. However, this summer the Potts think it is time that they returned the garden to its original function - a pleasant open space in which to entertain. lan gets inspiration at a nearby garden, David Domoney builds a pond, Katie Rushworth finds the perfect plants for the space and Frances Tophill creates an orchard area.

Alan and his team are in Norwich where they come to the aid of the Costello family who have moved to a bungalow with an unruly and dishevelled garden. Dad Ian is about to be invalided out of the army and the move to Norwich is part of his rehabilitation. Ian was the victim of a roadside bomb in Afghanistan and despite making a valient effort to recover he was unable to regain operational fitness. Taking on the garden is a step too far at this stage of his recovery so Alan, Francis Tophill, David Domoney and Katie Rushworth set about creating an area of beauty for the whole family to relax and play with a decking area and even a hot tub. Katie plans a plot to get the children interested in growing vegetables too.

Alan Titchmarsh and the team are at the Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice in South Yorkshire. The charitable establishment gives support to children with shortened life expectancy, as well as providing respite and support to parents and siblings. What is missing from Bluebell Wood is a place where families can come together to remember those they have lost. Alan sets to work to create a garden of tranquillity in its surrounding grounds. He visits Lathkill Dale in the Peaks to get some inspiration, then gets David Dodd and his team to carve out a small dell lined with rocks and pebbles to emulate the riverbed of Lathkill. Unfortunately, torrential rain and waterlogged ground hamper the team's progress.
