As part of ITV’s NHS’ 70th anniversary celebrations, Alan Titchmarsh and the Love Your Garden Team get together for their biggest ever project: to create a create a garden for The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

This gargantuan effort is in response to letters from young patients, some of whom were victims of the nearby Manchester Arena bombing, requesting an outdoor space for patients, families and staff to seek respite in.

Alan meets the brave youngsters who wrote to him, some with life-threatening conditions and others like Lily Harrison who was treated by the hospital after receiving shrapnel wounds at the Ariana Grande concert just a year ago.

He listens to their suggestions and with his team, sets out to create a magical retreat full of thoughtful detail that the whole community can enjoy and Manchester can be proud of.
