Great British Garden Revival s02e10.

Wildlife Gardens and Peonies.

Diarmuid Gavin wants our gardens to become havens for wildlife. He visits a RSPB nature reserve in Yorkshire to understand how important our gardens are to Britain's wildlife population. He also meets a group of gardeners at one of the country's only chemical-free community wildlife allotments and encourages the people of Sheffield to grow wildflowers in their gardens to attract pollinators by giving them a taste for flower-flavoured honey. Throughout the programme Diarmuid creates a mini wildflower patch, gives his guide on creating the ideal wildlife habitats and shows how to construct a nifty pond in a pot to bring in birds and insects. Charlie Dimmock is determined to make the peony the star of our beds and borders again. She visits a nursery in Somerset - one of the oldest in the UK - which has been championing peonies for over 150 years.
