Monty Don’s French Gar­dens

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 8.30pm, Life­Style Yes, yet an­other gar­den­ing pro­gram, but one that’s very dif­fer­ent. Whether you spend ev­ery spare mo­ment cul­ti­vat­ing your own patch or you take a more voyeuris­tic ap­proach, Monty Don’s se­ries on gar­dens is a won­der­ful bit of es­capism. They’re not so much about what to plant and when, as a tour of in­ter­est­ing gar­dens that tell sto­ries about the his­tory, cul­ture and life­style of the coun­tries he vis­its. An un­trained but pas­sion­ate gar­dener, tonight he ex­am­ines how the national love of food has in­flu­enced gar­dens in France and been copied across the world. A vis­ual bonanza.
