‘It’s about time’ Monty Don stuns fans as he announces change to Gardeners’ World

Monty Don has presented Gardeners’ World since 2003 and he often shares pictures and updates about the BBC show on Twitter. The 66-year-old horticulturist sent fans into a frenzy after he revealed an Instagram account has finally been launched for the programme in a Twitter post. 

The Gardeners’ World Instagram page was started 13 years after the Twitter profile for the show. 

Addressing followers in a video alongside fellow presenter Rachel de Thame, Monty said: “Now, good news because Gardeners’ World is now on Instagram.”

“At last, at last. Yes?” said Rachel, to which Monty responded: “Well, it’s about time, we have to say.”

However, the presenter added: “But it will mean some changes, won’t it?”

“Yes,” Rachel stated. “I think it will mean that you get to see what we do backstage and how the whole thing works.”

“And occasionally, the odd tip might come your way too,” Monty teased. “So follow us now.”

The Instagram page has already amassed thousands of followers since Monty’s announcement and four posts from behind the scenes have been shared so far. 

Green-fingered fans were quick to comment on the Instagram account following the exciting news. 

@Wilflilyceramics said: “Yay finally!! So glad to see more wholesome content.” 

“Well it’s good to see that the BBC has taken the plunge – and good for we Australians who won’t otherwise have ready access to the programme,” @Mygardeningdigs penned. 

The update comes just weeks after Monty revealed he had to make a tough decision for his garden.

He wrote: “With a heavy heart I decided to cut the wildflower meadow in the orchard yesterday- at least a month earlier than I would ever want to.
