New Series Of The Great British Garden Revival

Following the popularity of the first series, the Great British Garden Revival returns to BBC Two in the new year. Nathan James Dodd finds out what endangered aspects of our gardening heritage will be featured.

Created by Nathan James Dodd on Wednesday, 10th of December, 2014.


Great British Garden Revival

During the first series top gardeners wanted to inspire viewers to save the nation's horticultural traditions. Placed under threat by front gardens being paved over and easy to maintain gardens, some of our favourite flowers and plants are in danger of disappearing altogether.

The increased risk of flooding and decline in wildlife, particularly birds and butterflies, caused by this new style of gardening was also highlighted.

Award Winning Features

The first series of this award winning programme wanted to make us proud of herbaceous borders, topiary, cottage gardens, cut flowers and ornamental bedding. 

In each programme the presenters concentrated on a passionate interest and offered practical advice on its restoration and maintenance.

Following the same format, the subjects in the new series will be just as diverse, with knot and scented gardens featuring alongside rhododendrons and creepers.

New Series Presenters

All the presenters are well known for their work on other television gardening programmes. 

They include Carol Klein who will focus on daffodils, Joe Swift is in a bog garden while Chris Beardshaw has tips on blossom trees and shrubs. 

Alys Fowler, James Wong and Rachel de Thame are also appearing together with Diarmuid Gavin and Christine Walkden.

They will all be addressing the decline in traditional gardening, helping us to embrace once popular plants and techniques that made the British garden the envy of the world.

The Great British Garden Revival will begin on BBC Two in early January 2015.
