Love Your Garden s04e06.

Alan Titchmarsh and the team are in London, where they transform the run-down garden of Joan Myers, a senior paediatric nurse who has worked tirelessly to help improve the way children are cared for within the NHS - but in doing so, has let her own garden become overgrown. Alan plans to give her a peaceful retreat outside her back door with flavours of Africa and the Caribbean, as well as more than a splash of purple, her favourite colour. He also reflects Joan's community spirit by challenging the team to make over three front gardens, finding different ways of revitalising these tired and forgotten spaces.

2018 marks the Beechgrove Garden's ruby anniversary. This week there are sweet signs of spring as Jim, Carole, George and Chris are surrounded by April's peach and cherry blossom.

Love Your Garden s04e05.

Alan Titchmarsh heads to Bideford in Devon, where Tamsyn and Alex Wood's lives have been turned upside down in the last three years. Having emigrated to the south of France with their four children, they were forced to return to the UK after Alex suffered a brain injury followed by two haemorrhages. Alan sets his team the challenge of transforming the Woods' garden into a coastal haven, inspired by Alex's passion for surfing and the home's proximity to the sea. David Domoney upcycles a boat to create a bespoke daybed, Katie Rushworth turns old fruit barrels into raised planters and Frances Tophill introduces swathes of hardy flowers mixed in with paths of shingle.

Alan Titchmarsh and the team are called to Runcorn, Cheshire, by Karan Waller, who wants to thank her family for all the support they have given her as she battles a brain tumour.

David Domoney builds bespoke seating from slate that also incorporates handy storage, Frances Tophill demonstrates ways of maintaining colour in the garden all year round, and Katie Rushworth helps to create an extra planted area on the roof of the new shed. As an additional challenge, the experts transform Karan's front garden into a welcoming, flower-filled paradise.
