Alan Titchmarsh's Gardening Club

Alan Titchmarsh welcomes us to the first episode of a whole new gardening programme Alan Titchmarsh's Gardening Club on Monday 4 March 2024 on ITV.

This 1 hour long programme is to run for 10 episodes on a Monday afternoon starting at 2 pm, an unusual time slot for a weekly gardening programme but will also be repeated on Sunday lunch time on ITV.


The new daytime gardening programme will appeal to all types of gardeners, with whatever size garden they have.

It will showcase new garden trends, visit innovative gardens throughout the UK, share gardening tips and cover indoor to allotment gardening as well as meet keen amateur gardeners showing us their own garden spaces.

Garden Club Members
Alan also has his members who have been working on and filming their own gardens to show us their experiences of gardening.


Alex Smith started his gardening project last year and will be on the programme every week to show us exactly how much food an amateur gardener can produce.

He has a plot in his parents garden where he is living and he has made a plan of what he is growing and when to sow.

We will follow him through the whole process from wondering how many of each vegetable to grow to hopefully a good harvest!

For the programme they are using existing YouTube videos from Alex's Channel

Garden Club Plant-Fluencers
Each week a different viewer will share their garden and gardening tips with us as Plant-Fluencers!

These also seem to be from existing YouTube videos.


Garden Club Horticultural Heroes
Each week a different Expert will answer 5 questions from the viewers in 'Gardening in Five'.


Alan Titchmarsh


Alan Titchmarsh will of course be fronting his programme from his own beautiful garden and giving his own vast gardening knowledge to the viewers.

As an ex presenter of Gardeners' World will this new innovative Daytime Gardening Programme give the BBC competition?

Beechgrove Gardens have gone through a re-vamp the last few seasons bringing in new and younger Gardeners to the Team and adding new features that have proved popular and some less popular ideas like the Beechgrowers.

Are the viewers happy already with Monty Don and his Team of familiar Gardeners or is it time for 74 year old Alan Titchmarsh to take Garden programmes on a whole new walk down the garden path and take the 'Best in Show' title?

No-one has mentioned pets, will there be any furry additions to the Team?
