Gardeners’ World is back for yet another season, with lead host Monty Don and the rest of his green thumbed team ready for another spring.
This year sees one of their toughest yet, as the flooding and storms which took place in early 2020 have greatly impacted Monty’s garden Longmeadow.
One of the returning hosts this series is Nick Bailey. So, we thought it best to get to know more about the host as he descends back on our screens for more horticultural wisdom.
