Alan Titchmarsh & Ryan Colson helped young foster parent and mother of two Fiona Kirlew for the Love Your Garden show

Alan Titchmarsh headed to Nottingham and got the best reaction ever when he surprised young foster parent and mother of two Fiona Kirlew with a fantastic garden makeover.

Despite only being 36, Fiona has fostered over 40 teenage children and keeps in touch with all of them.

Her grown-up ex-foster children (one of whom nominated her) share just how much they owe to Fiona’s commitment to giving them the best start in life.

Alan and the team turn this bubbly super-mum’s dismal paved-over yard into a lush Caribbean haven that evokes her father’s garden in Jamaica. Ryan Colson and his team at Colson Transport generously helped out with the details by donating a skip to help clear the space to make the transformation possible.


Love Your Garden is on ITV 1 on Wednesday, August 28th at 8pm
