Monty Don, 66, left Gardeners’ World fans devastated after revealing he will be working on his “last shoot” for the BBC series next week. In a Twitter post, the horticulturalist informed his 240,000 followers that after next week’s filming session, “that is it for this season”.

Monty went on to detail some unfortunate filming conditions he has experienced towards the end of this year’s series.

The star explained he and his team had endured “horrible wet weather” while working in Hergest Croft Gardens.

Monty began by telling fans: “Very good couple of days filming in the garden. 

“Last shoot next week and then that is it for this season.”

It wasn’t long before Monty was inundated with comments from Gardeners’ World fans, who shared their sadness over the series coming to an end.

Twitter user Sweetgentlesoul penned: “Monty, I will be sad when the show ends for the winter,am already counting the days to spring. You take care then and let me be the first to wish a happy Halloween with your pumpkins and a Happy Holly Christmas.”

SBSDiva added: “I hate it when GW comes to an end.  I know you need a break but you are definitely my calming hour.”

binthemaster suggested: “I wonder if you and/or @GWandShows would consider doing a midwinter special?

 

“To cover all the winter gardening jobs (like checking bulbs in storage etc), and to show off some winter gardens? Daphnes, Cornus, etc.

“Tide us over until spring! It would be very welcome!”

kathryn_b7of9 commented: “What…..no more GW ….no more Nellie or Patti….no more Ash. Please keep sending fb updates on things to do please. I need to know how and when to prune my rose.”

sabaone replied: “Always feel sad when it is the last show of the year . Fridays are not the same.”
