Review

Those who enjoyed Monty Don’s heavenly series Paradise Gardens earlier this year won’t want to miss tonight’s edition of GW. This time, however, it’s Adam Frost rather than Monty who gets to visit a stunning Mughal paradise garden – complete with minarets, peacock-tail windows and pavilions – at Sezincote House in Gloucestershire.

The team are on a horticultural adventure to celebrate South Asian influences on our gardens as part of the BBC’s Big British Asian Summer and among the people they meet is botanical horticulturist Bala Kompalli, who cares for more than 10,000 species of orchid at Kew Gardens in London and is currently working on a botanical survey of India.

Summary

As part of the BBC's Big British Asian Summer, the team celebrates South Asian influences on British gardens. Monty Don visits a Hindu temple in Neasden, to learn more about the melding of the traditional Hindu Mandir and north-west London suburbia. Frances Tophill and Nick Bailey pick up growing advice from allotmenteers in Bradford and Birmingham. Plus, Joe Swift visits gardeners in Middlesex who have created a garden celebrating their Indian roots and the programme meets botanical horticulturist Bala Kompalli, who runs the orchid unit at Kew Gardens.
