Carol Klein will guide you through a whole year in the life of her garden. We’ll see how it grows, flourishes, dies and is constantly reborn. From the chill of deep midwinter to the first green shoots of spring through to the celebration of high summer, the bounty of harvest home, the slow decline into golden autumn and the inevitable return to winter. Using highly innovative lapse-time techniques, the seasons will unfold magically. The series will be packed with information and it will also be a feast for the senses.
This is the story of a year in the life of Carol’s garden.
