The Flying Gardener – s01.

Gardening expert Chris Beardshaw flies by helicopter over a part of Britain, explains about the environment and helps an amateur fix his/her garden in a way that fits in its tradition.


Ep01 - A visit to Cumbria and the Lake District, a perfect place for water loving plants. Chris Beardshaw helps improve a lackluster pond overrun by ducks and plant a bog garden with bold foliage and colourful flowering plants.

Ep02 - Chris visits Whitstable in Kent—the market garden of England—to help a woman trying to grow a vegetable garden organically to feed her family. They plant fruit, vegetables, train a grape vine and create a pond to help control pests.

Ep03 - Chris Beardshaw visits sub-tropical Cornwall with its exotic plants and unique environmental conditions. He plants a school courtyard garden and looks for plants suitable for containers: ones that are drought, heat, sun and wind tolerant.

Ep04 - The windswept north Norfolk coast demands tough plants and Chris Beardshaw helps a gardener choose salt and wind tolerant plants that will work in his exposed garden.
He plants a sink garden designs a bed with plants adapted to the harsh conditions and visits a lavender farm.

Ep05 - Chris Beardshaw visits Scotland and advises an oyster fisherman on what plants will succeed in his shady garden with acid soil. They design a garden that mimics natural woodland and thrives in shade. They improve the soil and learn to prune tall trees to admit light and air.

Ep06 - A trip to the Cotswolds, home of the traditional English country garden and mixed herbaceous border, where he helps the local vicar redesign the rectory garden.
Chris Beardshaw works with the vicar to improve the poor soil quality, select plants for a full season of colour and design the border.

    Quality is slightly better in eps 4-5.
    I tried a higher bit-rate on the conversion.
    Will redo 1-3 eventually time allowing.

    Max – thanks for finding this one. I’ve found Beardshaw a good presenter – and the gardens he’s designed are to die for as far as I’m concerned.
