Monty Don, 65, has responded to a fan on Twitter after they referred to him by only his last name “Don” as they remarked on a floral display created by his wife to mark Euro 2020. The Gardeners’ World expert urged the follower to call him by his first name as he expressed pride over his spouse’s creativity.
Before England played against Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday, Monty shared a St George’s cross made out of daisies and poppies by his wife Sarah Don.
Monty typed: “I’m not really a football fan (the Lions I support are playing with a different shaped ball in South Africa) but can’t help be caught up in today’s excitement.
“So here is floral good luck for the team tonight.”
In response one of his 235,500 followers replied: “Wow, this is really wonderful, there Don!
“Not into football either, but the contrast of the daisies with the poppies is really quite stunning.“
Monty teasingly typed back: “Don? Come on, let’s be on first name terms!”
He captioned the photo on Instagram: “Sarah’s floral flag for tonight.”
The post was inundated with compliments from fellow Instagram users who said the design looked “beautiful”.
One person commented: “Looks great Sarah.”
Another Instagram user described the design as “pretty and classy”.
While another person replied: “That is brilliant.”
The floral design included what appears to be white daisies and red oriental poppies.

The daisy variety looks like the Shasta daisy which is a low maintenance perennial plant.
It looks like the common daisy but grows in bushes.
The red poppies have been designed to create the red cross in the St George’s flag while the daisies represent the white field.
Unfortunately despite Monty and Sarah’s best efforts to spur on the England team they sadly missed out on bringing home the trophy after losing to Italy on penalties.
Youngsters Bukayo Saka, 19, Marcus Rashford, 23, and Jadon Sancho, 21, all missed penalties, leaving Italy with a 3-2 victory.
Sako and Sancho were seen in tears after the game but they were embraced by their teammates and manager Gareth Southgate, who said he had chosen who should take the penalties.
“It’s down to me,” Southgate said of the loss.
