Love Your Garden is an ITV programme fronted by Alan Titchmarsh as he travels around the country with his team to create beautiful gardens for extraordinary people.
Episode three of series six features a visit to Canterbury, where the team help outstanding soldier Gurkha Hari Budha Magar and his young family. Despite tragically losing both his legs in an IUD incident in the Afghanistan war, Hari goes out of his way to help others.
However, Hari’s own garden has proven difficult to manage, so his friends and colleagues asked Alan and the team to help. With Hari’s Nepalese homeland in mind, they transform his garden into a colourful private sanctuary for the whole family. There is even a surprise visit from Joanna Lumley!
Canterbury is a vibrant City that offers a variety of locations ranging from the modern day city, parks and open spaces, shopping areas to neighbouring quaint, traditional towns. Previous productions that have shot in Canterbury include Bargain Hunt (2012), Songs of Praise (2011) and A Canterbury Tale (1944).
The Kent episode of Love Your Garden will air on Tuesday 12th July 2016 on ITV at 20:00.
