Monty Don helps people create the garden of their dreams. Two families plan gardens that are as much for the children as for the adults.

Monty Don, one of Britain's favourite gardeners, has spent the last year working with enthusiasts up and down the country to help them create the garden of their dreams. He has listened to their plans, he has given them advice and he has rolled up his sleeves to help make their dreams come true.

Monty helps two families create dream gardens that are as much for the children as for the adults.

In Doncaster, Nikki and John want a garden full of edible plants and fruit. They have a tiny budget, a busy life with children and the wettest winter on record to contend with. And in east London, Nicola and John have dreams of creating a model village in their front yard and a seaside garden in the back. Their knowledge of gardens and their skills are severely tested. Can these enthusiasts step up to the mark? And what will Monty's verdict be?
