Monty recently ventured across Europe for his three-part series, Monty Don’s Adriatic Gardens, which aired on BBC Two earlier this year.

The presenter gave viewers a tour of stunning gardens in Venice, Croatia and Greece.

“Despite the restrictions of the pandemic I did manage to make three trips to the Adriatic in the summer of 2021 to film my latest series Monty Don’s Adriatic Gardens,” Monty previously explained to fans on his website.

He added of his journey: “This journey begins in Venice, and continues round to Trieste, down the Croatian coast, on to Corfu then mainland Greece and finishing on the small island of Hydra where I have been making a garden with friends for the past five years.”

Monty also previously shared how he has contemplated moving abroad after struggling with gloomy winters in the UK.

The star is left missing gardening opportunities in the winter months at his Hertfordshire property.

Monty told The Daily Telegraph in 2019 that “not a day goes by when I don’t consider moving to a sunnier country”.

He said: “Between the end of February and the beginning of October I have no desire to move my home at all.

“But I’d love to spend November, December, January and maybe February somewhere where the sun shone.”
