Elsewhere, Frances recently reflected on her private life and admitted she had difficulty “winding down” this year.
The gardening expert posted a lengthy message on Instagram back in September, as she offered fans some tips on improving their “lockdown garden”.
The small-screen star accompanied the post with a glimpse of her own garden.
Frances penned: “Textures of green. This is the kind of thing you hear about a lot when you’re learning horticulture and design principals and something I’ve always tried to experiment with.
“Obviously varying degrees of success.”
She continued: “But this year, having created my own, tiny, ‘lockdown garden’ it’s something I have really enjoyed discovering afresh.
“In a small space green has proven to be the indispensable colour. Everything bright was too much and made the space feel smaller and busy.”
“At a time when my brain has had a hard time winding down anyway with all that’s gone on this year, any business in the design jarred.”
The horticulturalist revealed she removed “bright flowers” from her garden in a bid to “harmonise” the space.
