Plant your ideal garden and we’ll tell you which horticultural TV character matches your personality

Classic shows had everything from flower competitions to radioactive vegetables. Which TV gardener are you most like?


Some green-thumb characters are informed by the actors who played them. Will Geer’s love of plants couldn’t help but spill over into Grandpa Walton. Carolyn Jones was fond of exotic clothes and décor like Morticia, though she never went as far as a meat-eating plant.

Other flower-focused characters include Aunt Bee from The Andy Griffith Show and Batman villain Louie the Lilac. Plus, there were plenty of amateur farmers on Sixties television in everything from Green Acres to Gilligan’s Island.

You are Lisa Douglas from Green Acres!
You've only recently gotten into gardening but you've enthusiastically embraced it, investing a lot in your new hobby. You like to do you things your own way, which can be quite different than normal gardening techniques.

I'm new here. It shows that I'm Aunt Bea....not sure I agree but I would rather throw a ball for my dogs than fret over plants too much 😉

I'm Grandpa Walton? Somebody's got some explaining to do--my folks always told people I was their oldest girl!

My folks told me the same thing...but apparently somebody lied because I'm Louie the Lilac! (Can't be right--Milton Berle looks better in a dress than I ever have...)

I am Morticia Addams. Hi everyone just got back from the hospital last night and the procedure went well. Still in some pain and tired but feeling better. Thanks to all my MeTV friends for their prayers and get well wishes.

GRAND PA WALTON, a character on a show I don't watch! But that's kinda my speed, anyway! Having taken care of plants before I've seen it as a meditation and reflection on life!
