After months of waiting, Alan Titchmarsh’s new ITV1 series Love Your Garden is underway.

Alan is back on ITV1

And here at Amateur Gardening, we’d love to know what you thought of it.

It’s no secret that telly gardening has been in the doldrums in recent years.

So with Alan’s first programme looking at traditional English gardens in normal streets, has it inspired you to get outdoors this weekend?

Who will you be tuning into to watch – Alan Titchmarsh on ITV or Monty Don on BBC Gardeners’ World?

Share your thoughts on both programmes, and we may use a selection of comments in the next issue of Amateur Gardening.

Have your say below!

    I would love some help for my Dad who is nearly 90 and has had to move house to be near my mum in a care home – the new garden is of course way too much for him and had been cleared now, but we don’t know where to start to make it easy to manage for him.

    Please can Alan come and help fix my garden , into different zones I’ve tried my best but it still looks wrong , it’s overlooked on all sides, and very windy, I need some bush type trees that don’t grow too tall , and veggie beds for my foster children to encourage them to grow things and bring bees and butterflies into garden. My garden shape is two squares that overlap . Deck and trellis done .

  • CHRISY Cooper

    Please can you send Alan round to my house to fix my garden, I’ve done my best to improve it by myself but it’s overlooked on all sides by loads of houses and although I’ve tried to make it into seperate zoned spaces for me and the children it still looks wrong . I’m a single foster carer so I would like to incorporate some raised veggie beds to encourage little green thumbs .and tall bush trees but I don’t know what to buy please help.

    Please help! I grew up living with my Mum and Grandmother. She still lives in the very large old house my Mum and then I grew up in.My Gran loves gardening but she is getting older and is struggling with the sheer volume. Every time I come home I am strimming, cutting ripping and doing as much as I can to help. Please can you help, come in and re design it so it was a little lower maintenance? Please.

    I really thought it could have been more about the garden then the person that owned it…and why oh why must we at every break go over the same dialog?

    I thought Alan’s show was great,I’ve been waiting for him to come back to gardening after watching his afternoon shows and I wasn’t disappointed ,great job.

    I love Alan Titchmarsh and all that he does and was looking forward to this show. All was well until the lady, whose garden was being shown, suddenly said ‘please don’t put this on air but I used all my heating allowance to pay for that plant’ (a single fern). Call me old fashioned but shouldn’t that money be used for what it was given for? And why on earth didn’t they leave her remark out? Am I the only only one who has been offended by it? Probably! Oh well….
