Product Description

This is a must for all gardening and Gardeners’ World fans.

Geoff Hamilton is renowned as a gardening legend. The much-loved gardener was the longest serving presenter of Gardeners' World and was one of the first to start advocating organic methods of gardening. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Gardeners’ World, this DVD collection brings together three of his most popular TV series - The Cottage Garden, The Paradise Garden and The Ornamental Kitchen Garden.

In The Cottage Garden, Hamilton shows how easy and economical cottage gardening can be. In his pursuit to uncover the history of the cottage garden, Hamilton travels the country examining the methods developed by gardeners over the years.

In his last ever series, The Paradise Garden, Hamilton reveals his hints and tips for creating and planting a secluded garden; a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The six-part series shows how to use scent and colours in the garden, as well as looking at water features and how to lure desirable wildlife into your outdoor paradise.

Available for the first time on DVD, The Ornamental Kitchen Garden is an engaging series giving practical advice on constructing a modern kitchen garden, without compromising its looks. The Ornamental Kitchen Garden provides essential insight on plant selection and locations, planting schedules, harvesting times, soil type, drainage, crop rotation and composting.

Synopsis

A collection featuring three of Geoff Hamilton’s most popular gardening programmes. Includes The Cottage Garden, The Paradise Garden and The Ornamental Kitchen Garden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant gardening 29 Oct 2007
These DVDs were exactly what I was looking for being a new gardener. Geoff Hamilton can inspire anyone to start gardening or go on and explore new species. There are step by step instructions on almost all matters from planting, propagating, pruning, composting, creating a cottage garden, preparing a new garden from scratch. I wish there were more of these DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 2 April 2008
Geoff Hamilton was THE architypal gardener. His easy-natured approach and love of traditional gardening methods have stood the test of time, and always will do. The 3 dvd's are beautifully filmed, wonderfully atmospheric and thoroughly informative. Geoff creates some stunning gardens and, along the way, meets several other gardeners (I must mention old George in "Cottage Gardens" - a hero of mine) and this adds to the flavour of the series, and should inspire anyone pick up a fork and get cracking.
Buy it - it's a wonderful way to spend an evening in front of the telly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Geoff was an Amazing Man! 9 Sep 2008
This collecion is a must have for all people that loves gardens. I'm in Australia and the climate is different from England but the series is so packed of precious knowledge that I'm finding myself watching the DVD's over and over again.
I'm an horticulturist but still find invaluable knowledge and I find it even more precious because is coming from the heart.
Geoff was a very nice and enthusiastic person, with great love for gardening; and you can feel this watching and hearing him.
I also love the pace of the series, not rushing like many modern programs that are a very fast pace. Geoff takes time to explain things in simple english and showing heaps of examples, historical connections, interviews and beautiful gardens of both pro and amateurs.
This is one of the best DVD's I ever bought, a real pearl!
But if you like modern, cold, garden designs than this series is not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Geoff Hamilton was an inspiration 23 Feb 2008

It's great to have these three series available on disc. Geoff inspired so many people to put more thought into their gardening. I was privileged to be hired to do the weaving scene in the Cottage Gardens video and saw at first hand the meticulous work that went into these projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars geoff hamilton bbc collection 1 Feb 2009
By J K
If you like gardening but are not sure where to start, this series is ideal. Not only was Geoff Hamilton one of the best presenters of Gardeners World he has a way of explaining things that a novice can easily understand including gardening and simple structural projects. This series is a delight to watch covering many aspects of gardening. Highly recommended for learners and the more experienced alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational 27 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
If there is a heaven, then I hope it's an English garden, and that Geoff Hamilton is the head gardener, and loving every eternal second of it, forever and ever. And I hope the delightful George Flatt and Hannah Hutchinson and all the other wonderful interviewees are there, helping out.

What a loss he was and is to the art and craft of gardening; there simply has been nobody to eclipse him (sorry, Alan, sorry Monty). Supremely practical, organic, sensitive, skilled, and with an eye always to economy, he was, simply, the gardeners gardener. He makes it all seem so very, very obtainable.

How wonderful to have this marvellous boxed set of three of his best-loved series, 'The Ornamental Kitchen Garden ' 1990, 'Cottage Gardens',1995 and 'Paradise Gardens',1997 finally released in one boxed set. What a delight and a bargain, something I'm sure he would have approved of! ). Gardeners heaven indeed! I simply cannot recommend this boxed set enough, either for the experienced gardener or the romantic dreamer. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best gardening DVD I've found 3 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase
All the above reviews are spot on. Another thing that is very useful is that Geoff also touches on a bit of hard landscaping (basic - but to the point) which I found very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Summer Evenings 9 May 2010
Verified Purchase
Compulsive viewing. Summer evenings in a box...Geoff Hammilton was a little piece of England and the person we would all have wished for as our next-door neighbour. So great to hear his sensible and down-to-earth approach to gardening again. Pure nostalgia.
