Monty recalled encountering another difficult issue, as he was unable to bury his beloved dog straight away due to his filming schedule.
The horticulturalist continued: “But I said, ‘I can’t bury him tonight or tomorrow because I’m filming’, so they put him in the freezer.
“The whole thing was incredibly gut-wrenchingly sad, but at the same time hysterically funny so I said, ‘Please make him look nice’.
“And they said, ‘We’re going to have to fit him in’ and he was a big dog!”
The father-of-three has two remaining dogs, Nell and Patti, who are regularly seen on his Instagram account and on Gardeners’ World.
