Prue Leith has landed a new Channel 4 gardening show, Prue’s Great Garden Plot, which is where she starts a new horticultural adventure with her husband, John Playfair.

After she has said goodbye to her almost 50-year-old home, the four-part series follows Prue and John as they move into a modern barn that they designed together. Determined to complete the two acre garden in just 12 months, the couple in the series will tackle tons of trash, rubble, rusting buildings, and overgrown vegetation to create the plot of their dreams.

In the four episodes, The Great British Bake Off’s Prue takes inspiration from some of the best private gardens in the country as she delves into designing, digging, and planting the garden of her dreams. As the garden takes shape, the series offers tips easily accessible to anyone in need of inspiration.

“I’m not a Monty Don, but I’ve been gardening for 45 years and just love it,” says Prue. “But this garden has to be manageable for two oldies who don’t feel like kneeling, stooping or hobbling heavy things. So a robot for the lawn, troughs for the vegetables and pots on the terrace. And a couple of disasters! ‘
