While these days he makes regular appearances on Gardeners' World, he began his broadcasting career back in 1995 when he presented Gardens Wild and Wonderful in South Africa.
Nick is also the former Head Gardener at London's oldest botanic garden – Chelsea Physic Garden, where he spent seven years redesigning and developing the site and its plant collections for modern audiences.
Is Nick Bailey married?
Although Nick is more than happy to share his gardening tips and tricks with the nation, he is not so forthcoming when it comes to his personal life. As such, not much is known of his life away from cameras.
It's not known if Nick is currently married or in a relationship, but by the looks of his Instagram @nickbailey365, he is a very doting dog dad! He often shares snaps of his one-year-old spaniel named Orla.

In a recent post to mark Orla's first birthday, he shared a throwback to summer 2021 when the sweet pup was just a few months old. "Orla turned one today so here's a throw back to last summer with her, my wonderful sister and me," he captioned the snap.

Nick has been presenting Gardeners' World since 2016
In Friday's episode, he and Frances celebrate the joys of indoor gardening in a special programme from Oxford Botanic Garden all about houseplants, which have seen a huge resurgence in popularity in recent years, thanks in no small part to the coronavirus pandemic which left many people desperate for some greenery in their inside spaces.
