Alan Titchmarsh: historical garden secrets

One of our most famous gardeners, Alan Titchmarsh tells BBC Breakfast how he managed to find time to write a book and film a new gardening series for the BBC.

Alan's new four-part series Alan's Garden Secrets takes an historical look at the designs of some of the greatest gardens in Britain.

His latest book When I Was a Nipper takes him on a personal, nostalgic journey through post-war Britain in search of treasured values and traditions.
