So, what about the application requirements?
The application process for Love Your Garden is quite lengthy in comparison to many reality TV shows. Probably because many people are desperate for Alan and his team to work their magic on their gardens!
To be on the garden makeover show you have to be a UK resident over the age of eighteen, without any criminal convictions or anything that could draw “negative press.” You need to make sure you, your partner or immediate relative are not employed to any company associated with Love Your Garden.
You will also need to fill out the application form in full and send a recent photograph of yourself or your nominee.
Alongside this information, you need to agree to further auditions and potential medical/psychological assessments, as have become commonplace in the ITV casting process.

But have I missed the deadline?
Unfortunately for this series, yes. The deadline for the most recent application passed on June 1st, 2021.
The previous deadline was February 1st, 2021. With only four months between the two application deadlines, you can see how many Love Your Garden episodes the ITV team are rolling out!
With this in mind, they could be recruiting new candidates as soon as October 2021. So, make a note of the ‘how to apply’ process and get ready to submit your nomination forms.
In the meantime, you can also apply to a new show with Alan Titchmarsh. On July 26th, 2021, the official Love Your Garden Twitter account posted: “Alan is interested in hearing from Britain’s cleverest garden innovators for a new programme! Have you found an amazing way to create a feature in your garden on a budget? Maybe you’ve upcycled parts of your garden to create something new?”
So, although you might not be able to get Alan’s team to renovate your lawn, you can still get the chance to feature on a show with him!
