5.0 out of 5 stars This has to be the all time classic garden tour, 30 April 2012

This review is from: Around The World In 80 Gardens : Complete BBC Series [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
My wife and I watched the whole series when it was first broadcast on the BBC and we were simply amazed at the astonishing variety of gardens in the various programmes. Did I know about Rousham? ( no - but even with Monty walking around in the rain, I know far more about it now!) Did I know about Sissinghurst?( yes - but Monty's visit and summary helped me completely recapture the experience and was so accurate and to the point! This is true of all 80 gardens visited - so much to learn and so many surprises on the way. Even though the DVD has been out for some time now, you can watch it again and again and discover new delights. If I have a favourite, it is South Africa with the extraordinary garden near Table Mountain. The combination of amazing colours captured in HD and the unforgettable sight of mist enveloping the top of the mountain. I could name so many other gardens which I never knew existed and I am drawn inexorably into a personal commuication and personal visit thanks to Monty Don's remarkable skill - he finds all the salient points and conveys them with such enthusiasm! I doubt if anyone will ever undertake such a marathon again so I really do award this series with the title " The classic Monty Don"!
