Carol Klein and Great British Gardens come to Bressingham
Revealing the Year Round Garden
Presenter Carol Klein and lifetime horticulturist Adrian Bloom walk through 70 years in the making of The Bressingham Gardens in Norfolk, from the development of the Dell garden started in the 1950s as a display garden for the family nursery of perennials in the form of self standing beds, to becoming an all seasons garden, very much dedicated to diversity. The unique aspect of the series is the 4 season approach, compared to most garden visit programs, which are shot at one point of the year only.
As a whole The Bressingham Gardens are renowned for their year round interest, particularly in the now 50 year old Foggy Bottom, previously closed to the public as Adrian’s private Garden, and in more recent years by his addition of The Winter Garden, The Summer Garden, Adrian’s Wood – mainly devoted to North American origin plants – and finally The Fragrant Garden.
Filmed over two years, the program reveals the beauty of each season as Carol and Adrian convene on the truth that achieving year round interest is most gardener’s wish.
Now with 17acres seamlessly joined, visitors can stroll through and take inspiration from the diverse planting and collection of around 8000 plants.
