Garden Rescue

Garden Rescue

Garden Rescue has become the ultimate garden makeover show on the BBC.

It was first shown on 11 July 2016 with the return of Charlie Dimmock to our screens.

Charlie was best know for her bra less appearance on Ground Force with Alan Titchmarsh and Tommy Walsh and several spin off shows following.

Charlie had been absent from appearing regularly on our screens and her return saw her competing against the Rich Brothers Harry and David to have their design picked by the house owner and completed.

The Rich Brothers

The Rich Brothers Harry and David are award winning cutting edge garden designers and this contrasts with Charlie's more traditional softer style of garden design.

The designers visit the participants home and gardens and working to the budget and requirements they then design and pitch their designs with the losing Designer helping build the garden.

We then have the grand reveal with lots of wow's and the losing Designer watching from afar.

In 2019, Series 4 Arit Anderson joined the programme to compete against the Rich Brothers and caused concern amongst Charlie's fans who thought she had suddenly left the show.

Arit brings her past experience  in the fashion industry and her holistic training into her designs and is now a regular designer in the programme.

Garden Rescue has just started Series 5 in May 2020 ton BBC1 in a week day, afternoon slot. 

In 2021 Lee Burkhill Aka the Garden Ninja Joined the Garden Designers on Garden Rescue 2021 Series 6  which was the last series for Arit Anderson  and the Rich Brothers Harry and David as they both left.

Garden Rescue Series 7  saw 2 new Garden Designer for this series is, Flo Headlam who was previously a presenter on Gardeners' World.

The second new Presenter for the  series is Chris Hull.

Garden Rescue is now on Series 8.

Garden Rescue Series 9 sees a small change in format as Charlie in Episode 9 revisits 3 gardens from previous series including include a memorable Italian inspired garden from Series 2, 7 years ago. 

This will be an interesting insight into how the gardens have changed and how the owners have enhanced them.

This afternoon series is just perfect after a day in the garden to put your feet up with a cuppa and enjoy and hopefully find inspiration, design and planting ideas for your own Garden Rescue.
