Dimmock is her name, and gardening is her game - celebrity gardener Charlie Dimmock returned to her roots by sharing tips with fellow green thumbs at a St Albans nursery recently.
Gardening enthusiasts attended workshops as well as question and answer sessions hosted by the star at Aylett Nurseries, North Orbital Road.
Always quick with a quip, Charlie, who formerly presented TV show Ground Force with Alan Titchmarsh, once said: “A world without gardening is a world without organised plants” and that her favourite type of flower was a “self-raising” one.
An Aylett spokeswoman said the nursery was “buzzing” during the celebrity’s visit.
She added: “Charlie was great; very natural and charming. She walked around the nursery and talked to visitors. She is very much part of the horticultural world, and in demand.
“We asked her to visit because Aylett Nurseries is in its 60th year and we wanted to do something special for our customers - we thought a gardening celebrity like Charlie would help people learn more about gardening.”
