Titchmarsh next for Garden Museum

Titchmarsh exhibition set for Garden Museum

Alan Titchmarsh: 50 Years of Gardening - a personal history in 101 Objects is to be the next London Garden Museum exhibition from 19 May to 31 August 2014.

The exhibition is sponsored by Waitrose Horticulture.

Waitrose horticultural manager Emma Coupe said: "Alan’s expert knowledge and passion for gardens and gardening is unrivalled. His personal narrative to this very special exhibition will give a truly unique and informative look at the things which have encouraged and shaped the nation’s love of gardening. We are delighted to be involved with the exhibition and hope it will inspire people out into their gardens."

Garden Museum trustee Titchmarsh will select 100 objects which tell the recent history of gardens and gardening in Britain.

They include his grandfather's donkey jacket, says museum director Christopher Woodward. Titchmarsh has provided many of the objects, which include a Flymo, fertilisers and chemicals and tools, from his own collection. The museum is sourcing the rest.
