Eight years later, in 2011, the green-fingered expert began hosting the show from his sprawling home in Herefordshire.
As an avowed workaholic, Monty took on the additional role of becoming one of the celebrity’s main hosts Chelsea Flower Show in 2014.
After this year’s show was canceled, the participants presented their displays from home. Monty presented a number of programs during the week-long festival last month.
A career in radio was never the goal.
But television, as Monty has admitted several times in interviews, created him.
Still during a 2009 Guardian In the interview, Monty revealed that he had a certain hatred for the world of television.
He said: “It’s a fantastic way to reach a lot of people – and I think it’s great.
“I like the people I work with.

“I don’t have public privacy – it’s a terrible disturbance.”
Before the glory of television, Monty and his wife Sarah, owned and operated a jewelry store in London.
Monty and Sarah were disillusioned with city life and the weight of business. They jumped on a ship and bought a house in Herefordshire with land.
This was the beginning of their problems.
Her previous home in London had not been sold and there was still a business to run.
The business collapsed and Monty, who almost ignored the world around him, created her house in New Hereford so relentlessly that Sarah described him as “married”.
A loan to buy a farm and the subsequent collapse of business left Monty and his family in debt and almost bankrupt.
Her unemployment was deeply rooted for two years.
Then, after a long unemployed season, Monty hit gold and managed a spot in a TV garden segment in the early 1990s.
The rest is history.
