In a brand new series for ITV Grow Your Own at Home with Alan Titchmarsh sees the much-loved gardener share insider tips and tricks on growing your own fruit and vegetables at home. 

Filmed by his wife Alison while in lockdown, this series sees Alan show viewers how to enjoy the benefits of producing their own food no matter what size garden they have; be it outside space, a balcony or room for a single pot. 

Plus, holed up in their own very different gardens, the Love Your Garden team - David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill - are also working on their own plots to turn them into productive gardens. Whether that’s creating a veg patch from scratch, a tiny edible terraced garden or making an indoor pizza-themed herb garden for the kitchen. 

These sequences will be interspersed with archive footage revealing Alan’s experiences of veg gardens, including inspirational growers and stunning gardens from across the country over the past ten years. 

Where possible the team will be working in real time so the audience can start working on their new gardens at the same time. 

With health and food supply high on the agenda it’s the perfect time to grow your own.

For those of us lucky enough to have a garden or patio, lockdown has made us appreciate our outside space more than ever before.

It has even inspired a lot of people to take a keener interest in gardening, and to consider growing their own fruit, vegetables and herbs.

But where do you start if you’re not especially green-fingered?

Here’s everything you need to know about Grow Your Own At Home, the programme that promises to help…

What is Grow Your Own At Home?

The lockdown-inspired series, presented by Alan Titchmarsh, promises to share insider tips on how to successfully grow fruit and veg in your own garden, no matter how much of a novice you are. There’s also no need for a sprawling garden – Alan will show you how to make the most of even a single pot or a tiny balcony.

Alan’s friends from his other ITV series, Love Your Garden, will also be on hand to provide assistance. David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill are filming in their own gardens, creating their own vegetable patches and herb gardens for us to learn from. Plus there’ll be a bit of archive footage with even more veg-growing tips.

Who is Alan Titchmarsh?

Seriously? OK. Alan is the housewives’ favourite when it comes to TV gardeners. Not only has he hosted countless gardening shows, including perennial favourite Gardeners’ World and popular garden makeover show Ground Force, he has also presented his own tea time chat show, a music show on Classic FM and celebrity competition series, Popstar to Operastar (trust us, it was surprisingly addictive).

When is Grow Your Own At Home on TV?

The three part series begins on ITV at 8.30pm on Monday 25th May.

Was Grow Your Own At Home filmed in lockdown?

Yes, the show was a quick commission for ITV, responding to our new-found interest in spending time in the garden and growing our own food. Alan took his social distancing responsibilities seriously – he filmed in his own garden with wife Alison playing camerawoman!
