Return To The Lost Gardens Of Heligan S01e04.

Barbara Flynn narrates this second visit to the gardens of Heligan, two years on from the original renovation. Although the scars have begun to heal, the wet summer of 1998 brought a threat to many of Heligan's rare and precious species. New faces join the gardening team, and the fate of many of Heligan's original gardening staff on the field of Flanders is revealed.


The series comes to a close with a final visit to the Sundial garden - once described as "one of the finest herbaceous borders in England" - it had become completely overgrown before it was restored.
Meanwhile, elsewhere, John Nelson has been lured out of Heligan to nearby Pencallenick, near Truro - by a greenhouse. But this is not an ordinary greenhouse.
It's a genuine Victorian model, presently situated dangerously close to what has become the playground of Pencallenick school. John has to decide whether it is feasible to move it, lock, stock and barrel to Heligan.
