The programme will be broadcast in the new series that starts in July. It will reveal how the many donations of plants and other items helped to create the dream.

Terry Head, director of retail and marketing, and team members John Bradley and Dave Levick also helped on the final day of the filming.

?It was not what we expected,? admits Terry Head. ?We came away with an even greater respect for the production team. They work very hard to achieve so much within a few days.? Whilst we were helping it also became obvious that Alan Titchmarsh really leads the way. He oversees the projects with the hard working team, and certainly not just when on camera.?

To see who receives the garden makeover in Fair Oak watch the programme?on Tuesday 26 July on ITV1 8-9 pm.
