Garden Rescue - Career - Netflix

Dimmock first came to the public's attention in 1997, when she joined the BBC gardening series Ground Force. Dimmock had met the producer/director of the series five years previously when she built a pond for the Meridian series, Grass Roots. Dimmock unintentionally became known for appearing braless on shows. Since then, she has presented such programmes as The Joy of Gardening and Charlie's Garden Army, as well as presenting coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show. In 2004, she appeared in the Channel 4 reality TV show, The Games. She has also appeared on American television, presenting a gardening slot on The Early Show on CBS. In September 2006, she appeared on the BBC's Celebrity MasterChef. She has also written several gardening books, including the BBC Ground Force books Water Garden Workbook and Container Gardening, as well as Enjoy Your Garden, a book on general gardening published in 2000. Dimmock wrote a weekly gardening column in the Mail on Sunday for many years, until January 2008. During the mid-2000s, after Ground Force had ceased production, she presented a local ITV Meridian series entitled River Walks, in which she walked along various rivers in Southern England, visiting landmarks and attractions along the way as well as meeting people who live and work on the rivers. Dimmock was also the President of the Television and Radio Industries Club (TRIC) from 2003 to 2004 and presented their annual Awards ceremony that year. In 2011, she joined the team of experts on ITV's Daybreak breakfast magazine show acting as gardening expert. Dimmock appeared in pantomime over Christmas 2011 at The Spa in Bridlington playing the Organic Fairy in Jack and the Beanstalk: she reprised the role in December 2012 at the Pomegranate Theatre in Chesterfield. In 2013, she presented an episode of The Great British Garden Revival. In July 2016, Dimmock became a member of the team presenting Garden Rescue, a series on garden transformations produced for the BBC by Spun Gold TV.
