Monty Don says working with plants is ‘a deeply sensuous thing’ after awkward question

“I mean the way you were just describing working with your favourite spade, there is something about a connection to the earth, and about a love of working with it that is… yes, it’s all of that,” she said, trying to put her thoughts into words.

“There is no question, that working with the soil, working with plants is a deeply sensuous thing,” Monty explained.

“And there are smells and textures and sounds, that is very physical and that’s good. And where sensuality becomes sexuality is up to every individual.

“But sensuality and embracing the senses and rejoicing in that, is something that we should all do. Absolutely,” he went on to say.
