TV presenter and horticulturist Monty Don, 65, took to Twitter to answer a confused fan’s question regarding the shooting location of the series Gardeners’ World. The author cleared up any misunderstandings surrounding the location of the BBC favourite series which saw him asked whether he travelled to the gardens to film the show.
Gardeners’ World is filmed in my garden
The confused fan asked the TV presenter on social media whether he “lives” at the gardens, or “commutes” to them to film the series.
They wrote: “@TheMontyDon this might be a dumb question but do you actually live at the Gardeners’ World gardens (I’m assuming they’re connected to some kind of building?) or do you just commute?”
Keen to clarify, Monty responded to put his followers’ minds at rest.
He wrote: “Gardeners’ World is filmed in my garden where I and my family have lived for the past 30 years.”
The favourite BBC series is filmed from his garden, Longmeadow, in Herefordshire, the West Midlands.
Monty and wife Sarah have lived in their home for 30 years. When they bought the property, it featured a two acre abandoned field and just one tree.
In his books and TV series Monty reveals how he painstakingly spent the following years devoting himself to creating the garden of his dreams.
On his website, the professional gardener revealed that planning for the garden started two years after they moved into the property and “has never really ceased since”.
The garden is now made up of four different sections, including the stunning Jewel Garden known for its vibrant colours and often features on the presenters’ social media.
Monty’s Cottage Garden was a section devoted entirely to producing vegetables but in the past decade has transformed into a floral garden which also grows fruit and herbs.
Instead, the presenter now has a dedicated Vegetable Garden which allows him and Sarah to eat seasonally.
The horticulturalist’s Paradise Garden came about following his 2017 travels and resulted in a two-part BBC series and book of the same name.

Sadly Monty’s garden is not open to the public, so fans will have to immerse themselves virtually.
Don made the news clear on Twitter when he said: “Can I make clear that Longmeadow is not open to the public. Not on Fridays or on any other day.
“You can ‘visit’ via GW only.”
When a fan raised the same question he added: “No. Absolutely not.
“Longmeadow is a private garden and is not open to be visited by anyone at any time.”
However, the presenter is always giving viewers sneak peeks into his garden via his social media channels, including Instagram.
Recently Monty referenced how he’s found it tough “from experience” over the years to tend to his garden as well as his other work commitments.
Gardeners’ World Easter Special is on Monday BBC Two at 6.15pm.
