British Gardens in Time

Just a short post for grounds and garden focused followers to let you know of a four part series starting this Tuesday on BBC Four, at 9pm: British Gardens in Time.


Alan Power, Head Gardener from Stourhead, introducing the Compton Verney Landscape.

Following a visit from the film crew in November of last year, it is hoped that the landscape of Compton Verney will be featured in some way during episode two, though the focus will be the National Trust’s Stowe Landscape and in some way Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. It may only be a fleeting glimpse, if at all – so do watch closely!

A short promo clip for the Stowe episode is available on the following link, but do also tune in for the first episode about the fascinating Great Dixter, which started life as an Arts and Crafts garden. Other episodes will focus on the Victorian Biddulph Grange, and Nyman’s.
