Monty explained: “When I visit a garden, and I’ve visited hundreds of gardens all over the world, is I try and empty my brain.
“I try and let the garden come to me rather than specifically hunting things out. So, if nothing leaps out at you, that’s a bad start.
“So, I want it to come at me. But also, originality, personality and just a sense of place that this is a much-loved place that is like any other.”
As Monty spoke about the competition, viewers couldn’t help but reveal they were incredibly distracted by his bookshelf in the background.
