The live shows will see the 66-year-old, who has been the lead presenter on the BBC gardening programme since 2003, share tales from his lengthy career, which has taken him all over the world. For those unable to make any of the ten dates on the tour, there is a chance to tune into a live stream on 5 December 2022.

The exciting announcement comes as Monty continues to provide viewers with indispensable gardening advice on the latest series of Gardeners' World.

The show, like many programmes, has suffered several setbacks as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, including production and filming being delayed and altered in order to comply with social distancing measures and so continues to use segments recorded by its green-fingered contributors on their own devices.
