White Stores have donated a beautiful wooden rocking chair made by Alexander Rose to Love Your Garden, ITV’s popular gardening makeover TV show starring Alan Titchmarsh.
Every week, Alan and his talented garden makeover team travel across Britain to magically transform unloved outdoor spaces into breathtaking dream gardens for some very special and deserving families. Once completed, each garden reflects the interests and passions of the people who own them – from a little slice of the Mediterranean to a Bollywood dream garden.
No brief is too daunting for Alan and his team of three trusted co-presenters and garden experts – David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill – who share the tips and techniques behind their own contributions to the new gardens.
Love Your Garden
As seen on TV last night, Love Your Garden transformed the garden of Maggie Simkiss in Hull. A Macmillan nurse, for whom helping others is simply a way of life, Maggie personally cares for end of life patients. Outside of work she has been equally devoted to charity work and loves looking after her grandchildren. Her own garden, consequently, has lain forgotten and unkempt… until now.
Alan set himself the near impossible task of turning Maggie’s everyday walled back garden into a grown-up Mediterranean hideaway that cleverly transforms into a play zone for her grandchildren too. Made from gorgeous FSC-certified pine wood, the Love Your Garden team handpicked our £249.00 outdoor rocking chair as the perfect addition to help Maggie rest and relax in her new look garden.
“When we heard that Love Your Garden was back for a new series, we knew that White Stores had to get involved and help renovate the garden of a truly deserving person,” says James Whiteley, founder and managing director of White Stores. “We’ve always been fans of this hit garden makeover television show, and the inspired outdoor living transformations that Alan Titchmarsh and his hardworking team manage to achieve every week. We hope that Maggie will enjoy her new garden rocking chair for many years to come.”
