Monty Don’s dog Nellie, known as Nell is a Golden Retriever who joined Gardeners World in 2016.

Described by Monty as having the attention span of a gnat, she often does not share the same amount of screen time as Nigel!

The pair however have one hobby in common… sleeping on the job!

Is Monty Don’s dog Nellie still alive?

Monty Don’s dog Nellie is still alive and doing well.

In August 2020 Nell had an accident when chasing a stick, she impaled herself on it and speared her throat.

This narrowly missed 2 arteries and with the help of an emergency trip to the vets Nell has recovered well.

No more sticks for Nell though!
