From the medicinal to the Mediterranean and the big to the small. This series tours around the gardens of Sussex and Kent, in a bid to uncover the secret gardens open to the public in aid of the U.K. National Garden Scheme. The host of 'Secret Gardens' is Chris Collins, a well-known presenter in the UK. A down to earth cockney presenter, who instantly dissolves all the stereotypes of gardening experts. He was previously head gardener at Westminster Abbey, and since then Chris has transitioned into TV, and continues to passionately profess his enjoyment of gardening. Secret Gardens not only promotes the U.K National Garden Scheme and the charities it supports, but it essentially encourages community involvement in gardening and the scheme.
