During the segment, the blonde beauty revealed why people should try out this hobby. "I think gardens got people through COVID, they realized how special a garden was and what they could do with it, they could become inventive, even if they hadn’t before they could start growing vegetables," she said. "It was a sort of spiritual experience for them, they discovered a sort of affinity with the soil – you can go into a garden and you can completely lose yourself, you don’t have to think about anything else."

"You’re surrounded by nature, you’ve got birds singing, you’ve got bees buzzing about – there is something very healing about gardens," she added.

The Duchess admitted that she has big goals when it comes to her plants. "I’ve got a little bit of a woodland garden that I’ve started and I would love to build that up more, I would love to put down swathes of bulbs, and I would also like to have a proper wildflower meadow," she said. "At the moment I’ve got a bit, but the grass has taken over and we’re going to have another go this year of planting more seeds, because I think, especially now, it’s ever more important to have these wild flowers – if we’re going to keep on attracting butterflies and bees – I think that’s very important.”

Even though she may have more space than the average person, she admitted that she has similar problems when it comes to animals eating the vegetation. "I’m very lucky I’ve got a big vegetable garden, but you get the mice, the voles this year, all ate the asparagus roots and got into the strawberries, so you can never win, there’s always something," she revealed.
