Gardeners’ World presenter Monty Don, 65, has warned that Zoe Ball, 50, could have “set Spring up to fail” after the BBC Radio 2 host predicted the season may be “the best we’ve had in a long time”. Zoe spoke out on the weather after warm and sunny spells were enjoyed by many parts of the UK over the weekend.
However, Monty was quick to tell the star that people need to wait and see what Spring has in store for this year.
Zoe shared her theory with the horticultural expert as she interviewed him on her Radio 2 Breakfast Show this morning.
The Strictly: It Takes Two host suggested: “As we look around us, I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.
“But the Spring flowers seem more vibrant than ever, we’ve had a little bit of sunshine!

“I feel like this could be the best Spring we’ve had in a long time, Monty.”
Monty chuckled before replying: “Well, gosh, now you’ve set it up to fail!
“I hope so, we all need it, that’s the point – we’re longing for it.”
Despite Monty’s initial reservations over Zoe’s predictions, he added: “I think you’re right about the flowers.
“I mean the crocuses in my garden are better than I’ve ever seen them, they’re fantastic!
“But I have to say today, and yesterday, is really cold and grey, so we’ll see.
“Last Spring was lovely, so if it’s as good as last spring it will be great!”
Zoe agreed with Monty, pointing out that people are looking forward to Spring more than ever this year due to the third coronavirus lockdown.

The presenter replied: “I know, I think because we need it so much we’re all getting very overexcited.
“The sun came out dashing about and I was thinking, ‘Don’t go too soon with the seeds’!”
Monty previously sparked a frenzy amongst his 766,000 Instagram followers last week by sharing the transformation that takes place each year in his garden.
The horticulturalist posted two photos to show the changes that occur with the seasons in the space, which he and his wife Sarah Don have named the Jewel Garden.
The first picture, which Monty captured today, showed a path in the outdoor space, fringed with empty flower beds.
The trees surrounding the area were also bare, as they had lost their leaves due to the wintry conditions.
A terracotta pot could then be seen at the end of the path.
However, in the second snap, which Monty revealed he had taken last July in the exact same spot, the pot was almost hidden due to the abundance of flowers surrounding it.
Explaining the contrasting pictures, Monty penned: “It is hard to explain just how much the Jewel Garden grows each year, but these two pictures give an idea: the first taken today (new path) the second last July.”
