The Great British Garden Revival6th November 2013 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
Fingers crossed the new 10 part series coming to BBC2 should be a treat to watch, with horticultural luminaries that include Monty Don, Carole Klein, Chris Beardshaw and Alys Fowler aiming to encourage the entire nation to get involved in gardening. In each episode, two presenters will focus on an endangered aspect of gardens which they feel passionately about and offer hands-on, practical advice to viewers on how they can restore and look after their own gardens. The series will feature episodes on cottage gardens, herbaceous borders, cut flowers, roof gardens, topiary, ornamental bedding, ponds and water features, fruit trees and kitchen gardens. Currently transmission dates are 7pm on 9th-13th December and 6th-10th January, providing the schedulers don’t change their mind. Should be good – I’ll be watching.
