Caroline Jariwala spent a lot of time tending to her Bearwood garden over lockdown, then decided to share a video of it with the popular TV programme.

The video, showing mosaic art work, glass flowers and colourful plants, was featured on Gardeners World's Facebook and Twitter and has been watched by more than 200,000 people and liked by 12,000 in less than two weeks.

Caroline said: "I sent a little film to Gardeners World the website back in August as during lockdown they asked people to send in a small film to show what folks had been doing during lockdown.

"I put my film together, it took ages, and I didn't think I had a hope, then a couple of weeks ago I got a call to say it will be shown on their social media.

"Today it's had over 200,000 views, and it was voted most popular film on their Facebook page.

"I was beside myself when I saw, so excited, I love gardening and for the last two or three years I've been saying I need to get on that TV programme.

"I said to the researcher that rang I would love for them to feature me. It's a relatively small garden compared to what they're used to showing and the average person has a small garden.

"I would like to show how you can be creative in a small place.

"I run workshops from my house but I won't be doing any until next year." For more information visit mangomosaics.co.uk
