Arit Anderson's career 

Hailing from Isleworth in South West London, the garden designer originally worked in fashion before turning to agriculture, and has won several awards for her stunning creations. She first made her name at the 2013 RHS Chelsea Show, and has only become more successful since! 


Arit helps to present Garden Rescue

Arit is perhaps best known for presenting Gardeners' World, and is also a keen writer for Gardens' World Magazine as well as, of course, her work on Garden Rescue. 

Speaking about how trends happen in the world of gardening just as much as they do in fashion to, she said: "If you go to the shows, such as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, you’ll see the same ideas popping up in different gardens.

"But these garden designers certainly don’t tell each other what they’re doing. For example, this year the fashion was about trees, not flowers or colour." Arit is incidentally the ambassador for Garden Day, so she certainly has her hands full!

Is Arit Anderson on social media?

You can follow Arit on Twitter and Instagram with the username @diamondhill2012, and her accounts are just as full of gardening advice and gorgeous snaps of the outdoors as you might expect! The star has most recently been paying homage to the cancelled RHS Chelsea Flower Show in a series of posts, including a snap of herself filming in the garden.

She captioned the post: "As our homage to the Chelsea Flower show draws to an end I wanted to thank all of the team #bbcchelsea for their huge skill and commitment to make the show. Everyone working from home and using every technology to make it as 'business as usual' as they can." 

Is Arit Anderson in a relationship?

Arit is married to husband, Scott, and lives with him and her two stepchildren, Harvey and Freya. She recently thanked them for their help while making a show during lockdown, writing: "And then my family, my partner and stepchildren who have worked hard behind the scenes and who pressed 'play' amongst so much more who were key to making the show happen." 


Arit's two stepchildren, Harvey and Freya, appeared on Gardener's World

Harvey and Freya also appeared in a recent episode of Gardener's World where they opened up about what they were growing in the garden. Freya, 14, said: "I've been planting quite a lot lately, for example I've been planting potatoes, onions and cucumber. Planting the vegetables was really lovely because I've never done it before."
