The ‘This Morning’ Rose

To celebrate This Morning’s 30th anniversary, a team of specialist rose breeders and I created a unique rose that was launched at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018. The bloom is dusky pink with a deep burgundy spot at the centre. It has a light spicy perfume and pollen-rich stamens which are ideal for attracting bees.

Buckingham Palace gardens

The Queen’s love of flowering plants and majestic trees is evident in her beautiful Buckingham Palace Gardens and regular public tree-planting appearances. I caught up with the Palace’s Deputy Gardens Manager, Claire Midgley, to find out more about the largest private garden in the capital.

There’s nothing quite like those first splashes of colour from jolly spring bulbs and early flowering plants like Forsythia. In this appearance, I discuss how to plant to give your garden extra oomph in the spring as well as offering some tips on how to plant for best results.

Terrarium gardening

If you’re looking to add greenery to your indoor space with minimal fuss, look no further than the trusty terrarium. Terrariums come in all different shapes and sizes, require little watering, and make wonderful decoration to brighten the corners of your home.

Pimp my shed

Father of four, Simon, gets his shed pimped by me and my team. Since he’s a huge fan of Mini Coopers, we took this idea and drove with it. Simon also loves beer, so his family asked if we could install a Mini-themed bar. Job done!

Spring gardening

Put a smile on your face this spring with the bountiful golden flowers of Forsythia, the dusky bee-friendly flowers of Hebe, and the delightful repeat-flowering heads of Scabiosa. In this video, I look at how you can get your garden into shape for the season ahead.

Who doesn’t love the smell of pine needles at Christmas? Choosing the ideal tree for your home is easy if you have a bit of horticultural know-how. Find out which trees retain their needles, what their comparative prices are , and whether you should opt for a cut or container grown tree to get the effect you want.

Outdoor Christmas lights

What would Christmas be without magical lights adorning the porch or novelty reindeer dotted about the garden? In this video, I look at the different options for outdoor festive lights, from fun light-up Christmas puddings to tasteful waterfalls of twinkly LEDs.

Artificial plants have come on a long way since I was a kid. They are more sophisticated and more convincing. Have a gander at the lush lawn and gorgeous flowering plants in this video… where all is not quite as it seems.

Autumn colour video

Autumn colour

Don’t be fooled into thinking that, as summer draws to a close, your garden must also close up shop for the cold months. Add autumn vibrancy to your garden with autumn berries, cracking foliage and interesting plant shapes to brighten up fading borders. Plus, a fail-safe formula to re-vamp your pots in time for winter.

No garden gardening

Have limited outdoor space or bare walls that need cheering up? Look no further than vertical gardening. Create a living wall using plastic drinks bottles, grow climbers and espaliered fruit trees up a wall or use outdoor shelving to create extra space for plant pots. Stunning.
