A crew from the BBC programme were shown around West Dean by Tom a few weeks ago, just before they were forced to close the gardens due to the lockdown.

Tom spent the day showing them the Walled Garden, the stunning Nectarine Glasshouse, the Pergola and the Spring Gardens.

He said: “I was so pleased to welcome BBC’s Gardeners’ World to West Dean Gardens on a glorious day, and I am thrilled to have been chosen for this new series of pieces focussing on head gardeners.

“The piece featuring West Dean Gardens will be the first to be shown and I am very pleased to join a prestigious line up, which also features head gardeners and the gardens they work at, including Sissinghurst and Ilford Manor, as well as several others.”

West Dean Gardens and Tom will be on Gardeners’ World on BBC Two on Friday (April 17) at 8pm.
