Alan Titchmarsh reveals his 30 favourite back gardens. 
To celebrate his 50 years as a gardener, Alan Titchmarsh has been on a year-long search for the best back gardens in Britain. Over the past twelve months, more than 600 applicants nominated their gardens from which he has chosen his top 30. Many of them are gardens that have never been filmed and Alan’s search has taken him from the northernmost point of the UK to the heart of Britain’s biggest cities, discovering people from all walks of life doing amazing things with their outdoor spaces at every turn. 
In episode two, Alan shows us his ten favourite working gardens. These are plots that do more than just look nice, they enhance the lives of their owners in other ways. From a vegetable garden grown to aid in the recovery of a cancer survivor to a Japanese garden built for meditation, we’ll hear amazing stories of gardens that are more than just a place for pretty flowers.
