Monty Don's French Gardens, Thursday, 2:15 PM, BBC2

Francophile, Monty Don
Monty Don's New Series of 3 programmes are repeated Thursdays on BBC2 and are available on BBC iPlayer: Monty Don's French Gardens. The first episode, 'Gardens of Power & Passion', focusses on important historic gardens. Future themes to look forward to are 'Gourmet Gardens' and 'The Artistic Garden'. If Boxwood bookings are any indication, it may be that France is challenging Italy as favourite dream garden location: early tours to the 'Gardens of the French Riviera' and the Hortus 'Paris Unpacked' long weekend break were fully booked and the recently launched September tour, 'Golden Harvest: A Celebration of French Potagers' is selling very well. If you do get to enjoy Monty Don's new series, bear in mind that Boxwood offers an opportunity to visit many of these gardens in good company. We have been running successful garden tours to France for over 20 years, tours featuring invitations and introductions from gardeners and owners of many gardens not generally open to public view. Television is a fine medium in which to convey the richness of any experience. We work hard to convey the richness of Boxwood Tours but the best way is to try one: it is very gratifying to find that most new travellers book again with Boxwood........For more information, click tour titles.......
