When Alan Titchmarsh invited us on a behind-the-scenes tour of his garden in Hampshire, we couldn’t resist. We spent a year photographing it, and you can see the results, with detailed maps and Alan’s personal take on the garden’s progression over 17 years, in a 10-page feature in the October issue of the magazine. Alan describes his garden as a private refuge – a “respite from the worries of the world”.
We felt privileged to enjoy a glimpse of such a joyful place and we’re delighted to share this exclusive 10-minute video tour with our subscribers. In the video, Alan explains the history of the garden, what it means to him and reveals some of his own personal highlights, which include:
- Circular dolphin pond, with blue-and-white planting
- Rill, comprising three narrow ponds and sumptuous, deep borders
- Two wonderful acres of wildflower meadows
Sit back, relax and enjoy your personal tour of Alan’s private garden.
