Gardeners’ World host Monty Don regularly updates his fans with images of his beloved garden, but has today revealed how one section has been “ravaged”. The gardening expert took to Instagram to share the devastation caused to his box hedging.
The 65-year-old shared a series of photos of his stunning garden at his Tudor farmhouse.
The first snap showed the once blooming hedge now full of patches with the leaves gone and the stems remaining.
Monty explained that Box Blight – a disease that affects plants – had destroyed the hedge.
The BBC presenter had to make a “sad” decision to remove it altogether.

Another remarked: “That’s a shame as it looks lovely, but for this reason, I’d never had it. Would be so disappointed if it got ruined.”
“See change as a chance, Monty. We had to dig out 90 per cent of ours a few years ago and afterward were glad of it,” a third assured.
While another person added: “Amazing. Change is good Monty, onward, and upwards.”
Monty’s Jewel Garden is located at his Hertfordshire home that he shares with his wife Sarah Don.
