Great British Garden Revival



The nation's gardeners await with anticipation. I hope it's worth it!

Starts tonight on BBC2 at 7.00pm - every weekday evening this week + week beginning 6th January 2014 for another week. Full episode synopsis here.

Thought for the day: Interesting to see a TV trailer also published on YouTube...

Update 10th December: Last night's programme looks like it's been well received - I'll be catching up today as I was at choir last night.

NB The schedule has been altered slightly with no progamme tonight or tomorrow and a subsequent extension into week beginning 13th January. The above link has been updated to reflect this, so is worth keeping an eye on for any future changes.

Update 2: It's been amazing to see Twitter light up with reactions to the programmes as they're happening. I particularly enjoyed James Wong's tweets last week which showed further inspirational examples of roof gardens. It got me thinking: as so much of these programmes has let real gardeners tell their stories (one of the programme's strengths in my view), it would be great to capture further examples from viewers - either existing ones or in response to the programme.

    1. Hi - I think tropical planting gets discussed in one of the episodes :) It's on record for me as I'll be at choir tonight.

  2. It looks wonderful. A bit early for me at 7pm though, unless I let the children watch it too as a treat. After all, it's never to early to instil a love of gardening.

  4. TV shows regularly release promos on YouTube here. What I find annoying is when they don't also release full episodes on YouTube of shows (such as this one) which I can't get here!

    1. I suppose they want to sell the series to as many TV channels as possible, hence the lack of full programmes on YouTube.
