Natasia's co-host Vic Reeves said that of the show: 'It’s not Gardeners’ World. It’s punk rock gardening...a lot of the people here could be in bands. It looks like a documentary about some rock and rollers instead of gardeners. It’s really good.'

In each episode, the 10 pairs taking part are given a different theme by which to make their creation. These include Sea Creatures', 'Green Giants', and 'Fabulous Floral Fashion'.

The creations are then judged, and one pair is eliminated in each episode.
