Synopsis
Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Gardener s World, this DVD collection unites three of Geoff Hamilton’s most popular series - The Cottage Garden, The Paradise Garden and The Ornamental Kitchen Garden.

In The Cottage Garden, Hamilton shows how easy and economical cottage gardening can be. In his pursuit to uncover the history of the cottage garden, Hamilton travels the country examining the methods developed by gardeners over the years.

In his last ever series, The Paradise Garden, Hamilton reveals his hints and tips for creating and planting a secluded garden, to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. The six-part series shows how to use scent and colours in the garden, as well as looking at water features and how to lure desirable wildlife into your outdoor paradise.

The Ornamental Kitchen Garden series gives practical advice on constructing a modern kitchen garden, without compromising its looks. It provides insight on plant selection and locations, planting schedules, harvesting times, soil type, drainage, crop rotation and composting.
