Escape to the Chateau's Dick Strawbridge vents about 'ridiculous' purchase to wife Angel

Escape to the Chateau star Dick Strawbridge has explained why he planted a load of "weeds" on the grounds of their French home.

Dick and his wife Angel Adoree have been taking advantage of the spring weather by spending more time outdoors.

To keep their fans in the loop, Angel shared a video of Dick working on their walled garden where he was filmed planting a "ridiculous" purchase. 

The pair have been tirelessly renovating a dilapidated 19th Century chateau in France into a dream home and idyllic wedding and events venue. 

Channel 4 viewers have been following the couple's ambitious mission to transform a total of 45 rooms as well as maintain and improve acres of land.

While the show is not currently airing on the channel, Angel has posted updates about their outdoor progress on their website.

In her latest video, she filmed Dick preparing to plant one of their family's "favourite ingredients" in the spring sunshine. 

As Angel filmed Dick unpacking a bag of compost, she said: "This is quite a nice angle with the chateau behind you."

As he was digging into the ground, Angel asked more about what her husband was planting wild garlic for.

Angel panned the camera on the wild garlic which Dick was about to plant and said it looked nice. 

However, Dick explained it was a ridiculous purchase "because it's a weed". 

He added: "It's an invasive thing, but then if you haven't got any or cannot get access to it, being invasive doesn't matter." 

The star asked her husband: "I know I have tasted it in cooking, but what is the edible bit?"
