I bought myself the 3 CD boxed set from amazon.co.uk and I´m completely beguiled. Watched ´em all in about 2 days.
A little background:
The Victorian Kitchen Garden was a 13-part television series produced in 1987 for BBC Two (Must see. Mike). It recreated a kitchen garden of the Victorian era at Chilton Foliat in Wiltshire. The presenter was the horticultural lecturer, Peter Thoday, the master gardener was Harry Dodson.
The series began in the largely derelict walled garden at Chilton on a freezing January morning and followed Harry and his assistant Alison as they recreated the working kitchen garden.
You can watch the first 10 minutes of each episode HERE.
Aren´t walled gardens lovely?
Boy do I want one of these.
Have now moved on to Geoff Hamilton´s Garden set. I must be masochistic to be watching all this at this time of year.
But somewhere mid-November we should be closing on the ruin. So I foresee trips to the tool store and much clearing away of bracken and vine. And I have tulips (from a layover in Amsterdam) to plant in some out of the way corner.
