Alan Titchmarsh TV show calls for 'out-of-control' gardens

TV's Alan Titchmarsh is recruiting viewers to his show so he can transform their neglected gardens into design showcases.

"ITV1’s Alan Titchmarsh Show wants you and your garden," said Rosie Irving, horticulture researcher for Spun Gold TV.

"The winter months can mean neglected and out-of-control gardens and we’re looking for people in need of a garden facelift.

"We want to hear from keen gardeners too - maybe you’re looking for some new inspiration. The format will be a clinic-type scenario and computers will aid design.

"The segment is about the principles of garden design. Over the series there will be elements of the design process each week."

A different person will feature on the show, due to start on 16 January, each week. Tichmarsh wants folks with small gardens or a small part of a large garden in need of an upgrade.

Spun Gold TV is calling for low-res pictures of people’s gardens and the homeowners, a maximum of two photos per entry. There is no deadline but ASAP.
