Garden Rescue fans were delighted when the series returned with brand new episodes earlier this summer. The sixth series, which aired on BBC One, reunited them with horticulture experts and TV favourites Charlie Dimmock, Arit Anderson and Harry and David Rich, fondly known as the Rich brothers.

But with the new episodes came a major announcement – the BBC announced back in May that series six would be the last for the Rich brothers and Arit as the trio have decided to move on from Garden Rescue.
