The expert gardener is also a doting grandfather to George

The celebrity gardener's adorable photo of his granddaughter comes after he opened up about his own childhood. During a candid interview with The Times, Monty revealed how his father Denis was a "frightening figure" whilst growing up.

"He was an army heavyweight boxing champion and a commando and had been through the war," said Monty.

The horticulturist added: "You didn't mess with him, and he had these deep depressive fits when he wouldn't talk to anyone."

Monty and Sarah tied the knot in 1983

Monty went on to talk about his twin sister Alison - who had nearly died following a car accident. At the time, the doting brother was working as a gardener in France when he was told the sad news via a telegram which read, "Come home. Alison accident".

Luckily, Alison survived the crash, with Monty adding: "She made what was deemed a miraculous recovery and got the use of one eye back, after endless operations, and one hand, and could walk with a stick and went on to get married and have children."
