He may have planted the seed, but this love story isn't flowering.

Despite all his gardening, in the end Jarrod Woodgate's unwavering devotion for Sophie Monk failed to get him that final rose.
Jarrod was left devastated when Sophie picked Stu Laundy as the winner of The Bachelorette Australia.
While it may not have been the most surprising choice for the 37-year-old Bardot singer, after all Stu was touted as the front-runner from the very beginning.
Jarrod's efforts should still be commended.
The 31-year-old was always consistent with one thing - he was in love with Sophie Monk.
At home visits, the vineyard manager bared his soul, telling Sophie, "I've fallen in love with you!"
"Hopefully at some point you can find this in your heart and see us as a future or, you know, have a future at least."
Alas, Jophie will never be a thing.
While we commiserate his heartbreak, let's celebrate the many tender moments shared between Sophie Monk and Jarrod Woodgate.
