I discovered Alan Titchmarsh while I was browsing gardening videos. He is British, charming and he has a beautiful soothing voice when he speaks. Also, I’ve noticed that when he speaks, he uses normal everyday language without all the dressy long dictionary words.
How to be a gardener is 8 series of videos on gardening and it is so well made. Alan gives you so much information on everything and he answers your questions all in conversation mode. He sprinkles gardening history in between the what to plant, how to do it, why you should do it, where it should be done and when it is done. He does it all so smoothly.
While reading up on Alan in Wikipedia, I came across this anecdote:
Wikipedia says: “Titchmarsh has a wax statue at Madame Tussaud’s. It was revealed on Series 2, Episode 6 of the TV panel comedy series Would I Lie To You? that his waxwork had to have its face cleaned twice a week to remove all the lipstick smudges on it.”
Well this just shows how much he is loved. Thank you Alan for a great program.
A video has been posted down below to give you an idea of what I’m talking about.
