To show how the style can be created from scratch, the Love Your Garden team of David Domoney, Katie Rushworth, Frances Tophill and Danny Clarke take on the plots of two hardworking nurses.

For long-serving District Nurse Pat Hastings in Redditch, a plant-free backyard is turned into a flower-filled traditional cottage garden with all the trimmings.
