“It seemed like an exciting new venture. I volunteered at Dawlish Garden Trust, which was a completely new direction for me, as I’d never worked with a client group like that.
“After a few months of volunteering and loving my time there, my boss offered me paid work, and I stayed there for some years alongside my television work.
“It was a magical place to be with the kindest and funniest people I’ve ever worked alongside.”
Later in the interview, Frances spoke of how she first got into gardening.
