Episode 7

 

Alan Titchmarsh and the Love Your Garden Team head to Hythe to create a sensory garden for an inspirational little girl who has severely limited vision and, who will one day go completely blind.

 

Four-year-old Isabelle Cooper has an extremely rare degenerative eye disease called LCA - lebors congenital amourosis.

 

With the support of her loving family, she moves confidently around her indoor environment, but the outdoors remains a greater challenge. The one place she could safely learn, first hand, about the textures, smells and sounds of nature is sadly off limits.

 

Her family back garden is an uninspiring rectangle of lumpy lawn surrounded by uneven and slippery paving.

 

So the Love Your Garden team transform the bland plot into a safe family haven full of challenging fun for Isabelle as well as gorgeous plants and flowers that smell, sound, feel and even taste great! 

 

This is one of the most fragrance-filled gardens the team have ever created.
