Monty Don’s delightful garden, Longmeadow, in Herefordshire has graced BBC Two’s Gardeners’ World since 2011. But fans may have missed out on his beautiful trimmings had his health condition put an end to his life.
Monty, 64 – soon to be turning 65 on July 8 – had to take a break from filming the TV programme in 2008, after suffering from a near-fatal health condition.
Speaking to the Daily Mail in that year, he revealed his ‘incredibly frightening’ experience.
Waking up next to his wife, Sarah Don, in their Herefordshire farmhouse, Monty didn’t feel right.
