About Monty Don

He has been lead presenter of the BBC’s Gardener’s World since 2003 and since 2011 the programme has come from his own garden, Longmeadow, in Herefordshire. Monty has also made acclaimed prime time series such as Around The World In 80 Gardens, Monty Don’s French Gardens, Monthly Don’s Italian Gardens, The Secret History Of The British Garden, Monty Don’s Paradise Gardens, Monday Don’s Japanese Gardens, Monty Don’s American Gardens & three series of Big Dreams, Small Spaces.

Born in 1955, Monty grew up in Hampshire where he gardened with his family from a young age, and was educated at a variety of schools followed by Magdalene College, Cambridge. From the early 1980s, Monty and his wife Sarah set up and ran a fashion jewellery business which enjoyed considerable success. The business closed in 1990 just as Monty’s television and writing career was taking off.

A prolific horticultural journalist, Monty Don was the Observer’s gardening editor from 1994 until 2006. He now contributes a regular column for the Daily Mail and Gardeners’ World Magazine. Monty’s numerous books include Fork to Fork, The Jewel Garden (both with Sarah Don), Around the World in 80 Gardens, The Complete Gardener, The Ivington Diaries, The Road to Le Tholonet, and his bestsellers Nigel: My Family and Other Dogs and Down to Earth. Monty’s most recent books are The Sunday Times Bestseller, My Garden World: the natural year and American Gardens, which like his books Paradise Gardens and Japanese Gardens,was created with the acclaimed photographer Derry Moore.
