David Domoney presents a money-saving method that might save you a lot of money on plants.
During this week’s episode of Love Your Garden, DAVID DOMONEY presented some useful money-saving tips for choosing which plants to buy, emphasizing that it can make a “huge difference” in the cost.
Alan Titchmarsh and his colleagues visited Neverton, Dudley, in the West Midlands, for this week’s edition of Love Your Garden, where they transformed a “featureless” garden into a modern Mediterranean refuge. The renovated green space was inspired by James, his partner, Jo, and their four-year-old daughter Laurie’s favorite vacation spot in the Mediterranean, Malta.
James, a care worker, enlisted in the army at the age of 16 as a member of the parachute regiment.
He lost three of his best friends to a suicide bomber while the squad was out on patrol when he was 18 years old.
Due to the traumatizing incident, he later suffered post-traumatic stress disorder.
He met his partner Jo while working in the care sector, and the couple had Laurie, a daughter with Rett syndrome, a rare genetic illness that affects brain development.
“We will convert this into an ideal idyllic evocation of the Med in the Midlands,” Alan remarked, determined to create a green spot that the whole family could enjoy together.
Alan got design inspiration from a suburban green space that contained a variety of “outdoor spaces” that he described as having a “undeniably festive mood.”
“We travel there to warm our bones, to enjoy the sunshine, and this sun trap here is wrapped around by plants that give you a Mediterranean feel,” Alan added, reflecting on why the Mediterranean is such a popular vacation location.
Alan pointed out a Honey Spurge, Euphorbia mellifera, during the garden tour.
“It still makes this place feel like the Mediterranean,” he remarked, despite the fact that the semi-evergreen shrub is native to Madeira and the Canary Islands.
Later in the episode, David Domoney advised viewers that purchasing a younger, less established plant could save them a significant amount of money.
He suggested that gardeners pick a larger plant “for immediate impact” or a much smaller one to save money.
With a Brachyscome, he displayed the cost-cutting tip.
