Prue Leith has landed a new Channel 4 gardening show, Prue's Great Garden Plot, which will see her embark on a new horticultural adventure with her husband John Playfair.
After saying goodbye to her home of nearly 50 years, the four-part series will follow Prue and John as they move to a modern barn they have designed together. Determined to have the two-acre garden ready in just 12 months, the series will see the couple tackle tons of rubbish, rubble, rusting buildings and overgrown vegetation to create the plot of their dreams.
Across the four episodes, The Great British Bake Off judge Prue will seek inspiration from some of the country's best private gardens as she gets to grips with designing, digging, and planting the garden of her dreams. As the garden begins to take shape, the series will offer accessible tips to anyone in need of some inspiration.
'I'm no Monty Don but I've been gardening for 45 years and just love it,' says Prue. 'But this garden has to be manageable by a pair of oldies none too keen on kneeling, bending or humping heavy gear. So, it's a robot for the lawn, troughs for the veg, and pots on the terrace. And a fair few disasters!'
Prue and John – who married in 2016 – lived in separate homes for 10 years of their relationship, five of which they were married. As the couple design their dream home, and finally live together, we can't wait to see what the final result will be.
Emma Read, Executive Producer for Emporium Productions, comments: 'For all viewers who love their garden or dream of creating one, Prue and John's new gardening adventure will give heaps of colourful inspiration and know-how in equal measure and we are thrilled to be sharing it with them.'
Prue's Great Garden Plot will air later this year on Channel 4.
