The new series of Love Your Garden has started on ITV and, for the third time running; we have been honoured to help. Last night showed the first of our contributions to the Love Your Garden team. The mission was to give brave little girl Tilly a garden she deserved!
Who’s Tilly Sawford?
Before I show the Spiel Caravan, I want to tell you a little bit more about Tilly Sawford. At 15 months old, while playing with her brothers, Tilly fell into a bath of scalding hot water. As a result she suffered 86% burns. Her parents were warned that her injuries were so severe that she wouldn’t make it through the night. Over the next 6 years, Tilly has bravely gone through over hundreds of operations and having her right leg amputated.
Emma, Tilly’s mum, spends her time raising money for the hospitals charity when they are not in the burns unit. Between them, they juggle raising a family, getting Tilly treated. On top of that they host massive fundraising projects. All these with smiles on their faces. It was actually the nurses who nominated this absolutely wonderful family.
Love Your Garden
The team consists of: Alan Titchmarsh, David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Francis Tophill. Their challenge to transform a rather small garden into one that will entertain 5 very active children (3 girls and 2 older boys) and very busy parents. As always, they did it in spectacular fashion and left everyone enviably reaching for the tissues.
After visiting a couple who had a garden I can only describe as magical, Alan fell in love with the interior of a Shepherds Hut. He text Francis, telling her about it, and she found a way of incorporating the beauty of the Shepherds Hut and making it fun for the children – with the addition of our Spiel Caravan!
To make it that much more magical, Frances painted the spiel caravan white and red. Thus make it really stand out in the garden. I love it so much that, if I ever have a garden, I’m going to steal her idea completely!
Once the paint had dried, and the flowers had arrived to a stressed Love Your Garden team, they got to work filling the space with stunning flowers. Frances, again, was in charge of the Spiel Caravan and turned it into a beautiful fairy garden with lilacs, fairy doors and some amazing colours. As you can see, the final product is absolutely stunning and we were honoured to hear Tilly say our Spiel Caravan is one of her favourite things in the garden, along with the trampoline.
