In this warm, funny memoir Alan Titchmarsh takes us on his journey from gardener's apprentice to favorite TV presenter. When Alan left school at 15 little was expected of him, but in the ancient greenhouses of the local nursery he found his spiritual home, learning his trade and the strange ways of human nature. But the comfort and familiarity of his home in the Yorkshire Dales would soon be left behind as he journeyed south to college and then to Kew Gardens where he encountered rare plants collected by Captain Cook and a varied assortment of eccentrics in the world’s most famous garden. Spells as a teacher and editor followed, until fate took a hand when he landed a job on BBC’s Nationwide as their gardening presenter. His childhood dream of inheriting the mantle of gardening god Percy Thrower was beginning to come true. From the first faltering steps in radio and television, to a career in broadcasting and writing, this is a wonderfully warm and self-deprecatingly honest memoir....
