His success follows a humble beginning, with Alan leaving the school at the O-Level Arts, and later moving to London to study journalism at Queens Garden.

He later joined the BBC World Service as a fruit and vegetable expert and in 1996 hosted a world of gardening.

But he has been in charge of the Ground Force since 1997, which has made him a public figure.

Allen says his love for gardening can be inherited. “My father told me that his father and grandfather were gardeners until I moved to Kew,” he said. “It’s clear in genes.”

“Who do you think you are? I was about to work. But my sister was the vice-principal of a school, and I did not do it if we knew what bad things her students were using to beat her.

“A supporter built a family tree for me back in the 1700s. We were Yoman farmers, so there was always a connection to the lands there.

Looking at the disruption caused by the cholera virus at Christmas last year, Alan said he would like to enjoy a regular family reunion.

He said, “We did what we could last year. Allison and I spent a lot of time obeying the rules and spending time with grandchildren in the garden.

“This is the kind of treatment that will return to normal this year.

“We have a barn here and a week before Christmas we will meet my friends for a night out. Only 50 or 60 people.

“I think we will spend Christmas away from home for the first time at my son’s house. This is fun. I feel good about being flexible, I just go where I want to be. ”
