MONTY Don has come under fire from a fan who called out the presenter for not having enough time for viewers.
The Gardeners' World star, 68, took to social media yesterday to share a photo of his vegetable garden in the glorious sun.
Showing off his red poppies that stood tall and proud, one angry viewer left a less glorious comment.
Monty captioned the post, which has over 8,000 likes: "Self-sown poppies in an orderly line in the veg garden."
A disgruntled fan commented on the star's post and said: "Monty Don, you probably will not see this because You never reply to any of your followers, which is a shame and to be honest, quite disrespectful of your followers.
"Even if you do not have much time some sort of reaction sometimes. Why do You post at all?"

Fans of the star were quick to jump to his aid, leaving comments of support and asking the social media user to be nicer.
One Instagram user replied: "Monty is a very busy gentleman, can't expect him to sit and reply to everyone he hasn't the time, he very very occasionally replies, he was extremely kind to reply to me when I voiced my doubts for growing snakes head fritillaries, and I was very grateful for his reply, but like I say he's busy and you can't expect him to reply."
A second shared: "Leave Monty alone!"
"Just grateful for all the lovely posts. Always a joy," a third echoed.
