Britain's Best Back Gardens with Alan Titchmarsh

Presented by Alan Titchmarsh, marking the 50th year of his career, he visited 'horticultural heroes' throughout the British Isles. 

400 applications and nominations were received and the thirty chosen locations reflected what gardens and gardening mean to the country as a whole.

One of the very best was judged to be Gardensite customer  Maureen Allen's Walsall garden. She's self taught and has been gardening for twenty years. Her garden was put forward by the National Gardens Scheme which raises money for the Macmillan Cancer charity.

The hour long programmes showed backyards that had been transformed into superb landscapes, and included outrageous creations as well as beautiful vistas.

Represented was an array of gardens, displayed in their pristine prime, they were works of art, fantastic and fun, even feats of engineering expertise.

No garden was too big or small, a place was found for the grand and opulent alongside others that were small but perfectly formed.
