One episode of the show has already been filmed.

Domoney is also working on Channel 5’s Saturday Show and ITV’s This Morning, on a 'pimp your shed' slot.

Other TV planned for 2017 is Gardeners’ World 50th anniversary specials. Presenter Monty Don said on Twitter that programmes will be an hour long in 2017.

TV producer Betty TV has recently finished filming a new series called The Avant Gardener, with Alan Gardner, the designer and presenter from the 2015 Channel Four series The Autistic Gardener. The three x 60 minute series where Gardner  makes over unloved gardens, produced by Betty TV, is likely to be broadcast in spring, though Channel 4 say it may be in the autumn of 2016.

Gardner said: "I always say it’s my weirdly wired mind that is the key to my creativity. I gain all my inspiration from my passions – architecture, conceptual art and the amazing wider landscape that surrounds us. And it’s this that I’ll be bringing to all of these gardens."

Meanwhile, the Charlie Dimmock/Rich Brothers BBC1 daytime series is looking for applicants to have their gardens made over for a new series of Garden Rescue for 2017. The 20-episode first series aired on BBC1 this summer.

James Wong has filmed a BBC2 series for this autumn on how "plant science underpins food".
