In China, Monty visits famous gardens from an old tradition, inspired by Buddhism and Taoism, with symbolism and focusing on harmony, notably with nature, which inspired it as well as other art forms...
Hosted by Mary Berry, Monty Don, and other gardening royalty, join us for the world 's most prestigious horticultural event and experience cutting edge garden designs that burst with color and innovation.
Alan Titchmarsh and his team of experts travel the country to find the dream gardens we'd all like to have. Meeting the colourful characters that create these spaces, they'll show us how we can live the dream at home.
Who would have thought that you could make a television series about gardens - to be so informative, interesting and enjoyable? As an ex-Englishman (now living in Canada) I am obviously biased - because we English love our Gardens. I have, however, noticed that here in North America (and probably the rest of the world) they are merely considered as 'back yards' and somewhere, if they are big enough, you put a swimming pool and that's about it.
This show panders to those of us who want to do more, know more, and find out more about the nature of gardening and the various styles, plants, habitats, climates, etc in which they can exist.
This show was more than just a show about Gardens though. It was a guide to those enthusiasts who celebrate our closeness to nature - and to show how others around the world celebrate it in own their 'back yard'. A tribute to the individuals who have created a place to walk or to sit and enjoy nature and also show the many ways it is possible to create pleasure for others to see and appreciate.
