Each week a different garden is given a makeover, which is completed within one day.
The Garden Destination Centre was chosen as the location because the programme wanted to include gardens that not only demonstrated, but also inspired ‘outdoor living’. The centre has 16 Chelsea Show Gardens that feature different styles of gardens and planting ideas that are used for general makeover ideas or to create different or unusual areas in an existing garden.
Presenter Helen Skelton took the programme’s guest around the Show Gardens as they discussed what features were useful for children friendly gardens and how quirky garden accessories can add that little extra special touch.
Skelton also interviewed Hambrooks' head designer Mike Hodges, who designed the show gardens and she was particularly interested in how gardening seating can double up as storage areas as demonstrated in the show garden ‘The Cook’s Haven’. She was also keen to know if outdoor kitchens were easy to keep clean, which Hodges assured her that built with the right materials, they are.
