The Flowerpot Gang s01.

(Repack)

Anneka Rice, Phil Tufnell and Joe Swift are the Flowerpot Gang, travelling the country and transforming neglected plots of land into extraordinary life-changing spaces. In the first episode, they travel to Woodland View, a nursing home on the edge of Sheffield where sixty residents, all suffering from dementia, are being cared for. The residents have a large green outside area for their use, but they cannot enjoy it. The paths are too dangerous, and the doors to the garden have been locked. After 10 days of non-stop work, can the Gang pull off stunning results?

Ep2.
Anneka Rice, Phil Tufnell and Joe Swift are the Flowerpot Gang, travelling the country and transforming neglected plots of land into extraordinary life-changing spaces. Today Anneka, Phil and Joe travel to Sunderland to help the Sunderland Carers' Centre - a charity that gives young people looking after ill or disabled family members invaluable support. Plus, Anneka reveals how viewers can help put the finishing touches to, and celebrate the official opening of, a Bristol garden.

Ep3.
Today Anneka, Phil and Joe help two Bristol schools that have formed an unlikely partnership. While the Student Support Centre helps students who have been excluded from mainstream schools, New Fosseway School focuses on children with severe learning difficulties. The schools share a common campus separated by an unused garden, whose renovation it is hoped will bring the pupils closer. Plus, Anneka reveals how viewers can help put the finishing touches to next week's garden in London.

Ep4.
In this programme, the Flowerpot Gang are at a housing estate in Poplar, east London. The children here are unable to use the estate's open spaces. With antisocial behaviour a persistent problem, many of the gates remain permanently locked and as a result, hundreds of families only have tiny balconies to play on and hardly any space to grow things. So can the Flowerpot Gang help the community resurrect one of the unused spaces? And will families start to use it again and discover the power of gardening?
