A prolific broadcaster, journalist, and presenter, Alan has provided coverage for the Chelsea Flower Show, and presented numerous other programmes including Gardener’s World, Ground Force, and Love Your Garden, sharing his passion for the outdoors, and his secrets for success. He is a figure of real authority and knowledge on the subject, while still preserving his down-to-earth manner and trademark warmth. With his latest book, My Secret Garden, Alan lets us in to his own private Eden. A personal horticultural memoir and an informative guide for others, gardeners of all styles and levels of expertise will find something to enjoy. Alan is an incredibly engaging and approachable speaker, and we’re looking forward to listening to the personal stories of his life and career, as well as quizzing him for some gardening advice!
