Shh, the secrets out.

 

Sarah Jessica Parker

In true Sex in the City style, style queen Sarah Jessica Parker lives in a five story town house in New York, with a beautiful tiered garden that looks over the city. Who said amazing gardens had to be in the countryside?

Mel Gibson

In the back garden of her Hawaiian home, green fingered Oprah Winfrey has a rather impressive farm where she grows loads of fresh fruit and vegetables. If this wasn’t enough the back garden in her California home is also pretty stunning.

Valentino Garavani

One of the most famous fashion designers in the world, Valentino has houses in London, Rome and New York, but his most famous is the Château de Wideville in France. Unsurprisingly, the gardens are just as spectacular as the house itself.

Alan Titchmarsh

Probably the only man on this list who has actually designed the garden he sits in. As one of the UK’s most famous gardeners, Alan Titchmarsh’s own private garden will leave you wanting to go back and re-watch those old episodes of Ground Force.
