Monty Don hits out at Gardeners' World viewer who slammed 'pretentious' BBC show | The Sun

MONTY Don hit back at a livid Gardeners' World viewer who slammed the BBC show.

As the BBC horticulturalist promoted the show, one television watcher called the programme 'pretentious and depressing.'

Monty, 68, initially posted a beautiful picture of his garden full of different coloured flowers and he whipped up excitement over the return of the show.

However, one former Gardeners' World fan seemed to take an issue with the direction of the programme as he implied only large gardens were featured.

The twitter user remarked: "I hate to feel that #GardenersWorld has become a pretentious show full of the gardens of the landed gentry and is just depressing for those who have normal small size gardens."

Although, the BBC Two star was not going to take the insult lying down and he did not accept that verdict of the show.

He wrote: "Good job that is not the case then.

"An important element of Gardeners World is to inspire and entertain as well as to inform and educate.

"We relish the magnificent, quirky and rather niche gardens as well as those of more usual size and content.

"But you can learn from every garden of every kind and size."

And the user seemed horrified to have insulted the gardening legend, as they then quickly apologised to the TV presenter.

The viewer commented: "I am sorry Monty at my rude tweet.

"I was lashing out as my partner just gets depressed now watching Gardeners World when she sees all the huge magnificent gardens when ours is just a small terrace garden.

"We love your wonderful calming poetic voice when you present the show however."

The spat was quickly resolved as Monty seemed keen to accept his critiques.

In response, he tweeted: "Absolutely no offence taken- and you make a good point we are very aware of."
