Why would anyone read the memoir of a garden show host? For one thing, he was once named the second sexiest man in Britain--his wax likeness is still on display at Madame Tussaud’s. But what really makes Alan Titchmarsh interesting are his very down-to-earth personality and career. Titchmarsh narrates his own life story in this touching and amusing memoir. He tracks his life as a youngster fiddling with horticulture in Yorkshire and relates events of his family life and career as he takes on host duties for BBC’s “Gardener’s World” and, in 1997, the landscape makeover program “Ground Force.” Even listeners who never had the pleasure of watching “Ground Force” will enjoy Titchmarsh’s humble charm and gentle wit.
