GROW YOUR OWN AT HOME WITH ALAN TITCHMARSH

NEW HOL MON / ITV / 8.30PM (TIMES VARY) / EP 1 of 3 / LIFESTYLE

Alan Titchmarsh is on a horticultural mission. With health, well-being and food high in most people’s thoughts at the moment, the perennial favourite has decided to return to his roots for a new ITV series to show us how we can grow our own fruit and vegetables.

Filmed in his Hampshire garden during lockdown, with his wife Alison on camera duties, Grow Your Own at Home with Alan Titchmarsh sees him share his tips for producing our own food, whether we have a big garden or just a room for a single plant pot.

Over the three episodes, Alan will virtually visit his Love Your Garden teammates David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill – who are also busy turning their very different green spaces into productive wonderlands, with highlights set to include an indoor pizza-themed herb garden and a traditional potager featuring root vegetables and fruit trees.

Here, Alan, 71, chats to TV Times about why he hopes the show will help our nation flourish…

Is the series suitable for everyone – from novices to experienced gardeners?
