After Monty Don's Italian gardens, I could not wait for the French gardens to be put on DVD. Hope Mister Don will continue this series in other countries as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars french charm meets english gardener 24 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Monty Don takes you on a tour of different kinds of french gardens, but it was the people he meets who make this so interesting and charming. There is lots of information for the keen gardener and lovely french scenes and also food as ordinary french people eat it.
well worth the money and best garden dvd I have ever watched.

5.0 out of 5 stars To be watched over and over 22 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait for this Monty Don series to be released on DVD after seeing it on television. There is such a wonderful contrast between the very formal French gardens and the softer, inspired gardens of the artists, especially Monet. Having visited Giverny in 2000 and been astounded by Monet's garden, watching these DVDs has made me want to revisit. It will be watched over and over again. Monty Don is a national treasure.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As usual an excellent , well produced , sensitive, and very interesting garden walk with Monty Don. He makes us all want to improve our gardens, and also to rush off and see for ourselves the gardens that he has shown us.

5.0 out of 5 stars French Gardens 22 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I found the DVD very interesting and the book which went with it also not only for the information about the gardens he visited but for his inclusion of family history .Although that part of it made me wonder how he has managed to work with the perameters of the BBC for so long especially within the very restricted 30 minute time frame he has to operate under these days

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a high standard. 12 Aug 2013
By C. Coe
Format:DVD
Enjoyed the series very much, with one caveat----wish it had been longer, ie more gardens visited and also more depth with each one. He is very good at this genre and I hope he returns to France again for a further look at some of the treasures here.
