When 39-year-old Philip Hunter discovered he had cancer, he wanted to find a lasting way to provide comfort for his wife Sam and their two young boys, Ethan and Josh.
Philip, a lifelong Alan Tichmarsh fan, got in touch with Love Your Garden's producers to ask for their expert assistance in creating a special place to live out his final days with his family.
However, tragedy struck the family and Philip passed away before the team had the chance to create a garden to make him and his family proud. But by using clever design and skilful craftsmanship, Alan's team created a beautiful sanctuary on the moderately sized plot.
Naturally, viewers were a little bit emotional at the heart-warming back story.
