‘Until then, bye,’ Monty Don says as he takes a break from Gardeners’ World.
MONTY DON has revealed that he will be stepping down as host of BBC favourite Gardeners’ World, with others filling in for the show next Friday.
Monty Don, a plant specialist, has hosted the BBC’s Gardeners’ World since 2003. The horticulturist has a large following of both experienced and inexperienced gardeners who seek to him for advice on how to keep their gardens healthy. Since taking over the popular show from broadcaster and gardener Alan Titchmarsh, he has become a fan favorite. However, towards the close of last week’s episode, the 66-year-old stated that he would be taking a sabbatical, bidding viewers farewell till he returned.
“I shan’t be here next week, I’m taking a week’s trip, something I haven’t done in ages,” Monty said at the close of Friday’s program.
“And I know I’m going to spend it here in the yard, potting – heaven.”
However, fans of the show will be relieved to learn that a new episode will premiere next week.
“Of course, there will be a session conducted by Carol [Klein] and Nick [Bailey] that will look at how to make every area count,” the outdoor guru stated.
“And it will air at 8 p.m. on Friday, and I’ll be back with you at Longmeadow in a fortnight.
“So, until then, good luck.” It comes after the presenter took a break from the show in April to concentrate on a different project.
He assured his 236,000 followers at the time that he would use the opportunity to record his audiobook.
“After being delayed by a year owing to Covid, I am headed to a studio today (and for the next four days) to read ‘My Garden World’ as an audio book,” he wrote.
On Saturday, the well-known expert came to Twitter to make a remark about the recent rain in the UK.
“Bit damp…” he said on a video of the torrential rain pounding onto his garden.
Monty has followers all throughout the world, as evidenced by the responses to his post.
“This morning I sat on my balcony repotting plants and putting seeds,” one wrote.
“The humidity in South Carolina is so terrible that I couldn’t have been any more soaked.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
