It is was with deep regret and much sadness that we learnt that Malcolm Dean who was the recipient of the garden makeover in episode 1 passed away on Tuesday, 25th June.
Malcolm was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease two years ago, and leaves wife Trish and son George. During the garden makeover, the whole team on Love Your Garden were touched by the sheer amount of love and respect the Dean family had for one another.
Trish wrote to us to say “Malcolm deteriorated very quickly and on Tuesday the pain was too great. He went to sleep and didn’t wake up, sadly just a few hours before the show aired. The garden brought him so much joy and he loved it all, he also gained so much from the experience of meeting you all. George now says this is his favourite house because of the garden and all the positive things that have happened while we have been here, so thank you very much for everything you and the team did.”
Our thoughts go out to Trish and George and the whole family at this unimagineably difficult time.
