BBC Commissions New Gardening Show

by Bethany Day on February 27, 2014

A new four-part gardening show is set to hit TV screens across Britain this spring, with a focus on heritage gardens, bees, soil and mushrooms.

British Gardens in Time will be presented by Chris Beardshaw, Andrea Wulf and National Trust head gardener Alan Power and will feature Great Dixter, Stowe, Biddulph, Grange and Nyman’s heritage gardens as part of series which will be shown on BBC4.

A show on suburban gardens will be presented by historian Michael Collins, while former Newsnight presenter Martha Kearney will tackle beekeeping, Professor Richard Fortey will present a programme on fungi and Beardshaw will present a soil edition of the show.

Garden lovers will also be pleased to know that The Great British Garden Revival has been recommissioned for another series.

“When the nights shorten and Spring bursts into bloom, BBC Four will celebrate the turn of the seasons with a delightful new collection of programmes exploring the wonder of Britain’s gardens,” Cassian Harrison, Channel Editor for BBC Four, said.

“From Heritage gardens to beekeeping and suburbia, BBC Four will cast a Springtime eye over Britain’s plots and plant life.”
