Nellie from Gardeners' World


Nellie is the second of Monty Don Dogs to feature as a Dogs from Gardeners' World 

Monty Don's dog Nellie, known as Nell is a Golden Retriever who joined Gardeners World in 2016.

She joined Monty's beloved Nigel and was described by Monty as having the attention span of a gnat.

Along with Nigel she was often seen sleeping on camera.

Nell sadly died on 20 October 2023 after being diagnosed with Cancer in the June. She is buried next to her friend Nigel, wrapped in one of Monty coats, with her favourite biscuits and toys.

Nell will be sadly missed.

Nell and Patti

in 2020 a new pup arrived at Longmeadow, a tiny Yorkshire Terrier called Patti, the smallest dog Monty has ever owned.

Nell lost her companion Nigel in May 2020 when he passed away following a short illness.

In August 2020 Nell had an accident when chasing a stick, she impaled herself on it and speared her throat.

This narrowly missed 2 arteries and with the help of an emergency trip to the vets Nell  recovered well but sadly this means Monty will never let her chase sticks again.

Ned Monty newest Golden Retriever arrived to join them in September 2023 at 7 weeks old and the pair soon bonded.

Monty and his dogs

The 3 Dogs from Gardeners' World  are just as popular with the viewers as Monty himself and what is going on in the background often overshadows the actual gardening!
