GARDENERS' World fans shared their support for Herefordshire-based TV star Monty Don as he showed off his upcoming book on social media, announcing the arrival of his very own copy.

The TV personality, who lives in Herefordshire, said that his book can now be pre-ordered with its release date set at October 26.

Appearing in an Instagram reel holding his copy of the book, simply titled The Gardening Book, Don shared: "This has arrived today. It's called The Gardening Book and is available for pre-order right now. It's aimed at all those people who aren't gardeners and don't know much about gardening. It doesn't matter what your situation is, you can improve your life by making some kind of garden that pleases you. This is intended to help you do just that."


The post received almost 40,000 likes and over 400 comments from fans expressing their excitement about the upcoming release.


One fan, Joanne Gibbons, commented: "Oh, you are wonderful. Thank you."

Helen Wyatt, another fan, added: "Yay! Can't wait to read it!"

The book is intended to guide beginner gardeners through growing their own veg, creating child-friendly gardens, connecting with nature, making the most of houseplants and more, in a refreshingly accessible format. 

Monty Don has lived in Herefordshire with his family for over 30 years, and has a spectacular garden at his home, Longmeadow, near Leominster.
