Monty Don is quite a character, and he knows his gardening. In these videos he travels to Japan for the BBC. We don’t get the show in the US but I was able to find the videos online and post them here. You’ll find them fascinating especially if you love Japan and love gardening.

There are two videos below. Part One – spring and Part Two – autumn. For some reason the beginning looks the same in both episodes, but they are different. 

If you find this show enjoyable and want to go a bit further, check out my book A Tea Garden in Tivoli where I go deep into the subject of the tea garden. Click here for more info.
