GreenSquare resident to be on BBC’s Garden Rescue

A GreenSquare resident living in Royal Wootton Bassett will be appearing on BBC’s Garden Rescue next week as her garden gets a makeover by the Garden Rescue team. 

Nicky Burn, 47, has lived in her home at Royal Wootton Basset for 14 years, with her daughters Leah, Ella, Katie and son Sam. 

“I’m on my own, with one income and always trying to do stuff in the house," explains Nicky, who works in dentistry as a trainer. “Every summer I look out to our garden and want to do something with it, there’s no seating area, no path, no flowers – but it is expensive and difficult to find the time when you work full-time.” 

“I’d been saving some money anyway to do the garden, then I saw an advert asking people to apply for the programme, so I thought why not? I’m usually quite lucky with competitions and things. I had a budget for the work and they supplied all the design, labour and tools. 

“It was really exciting to take part!”

During the episode, two Garden Rescue presenters – Charlie Dimmock, one of TV’s most popular gardeners, and the award-winning Rich brothers  – both pitch their designs to build Nicky her dream garden. 

The filming was actually completed last year (2019).

The episode featuring Nicky will be airing on Tuesday 2 June at 3.45pm on BBC One. Why not tune in and see the transformation take place?
