A fascinating television journey through eight of England's least known but most intriguing small gardens.

In the company of Alan Titchmarsh, this is a unique chance to savour the delights of some of our most charming, beautiful and diverse small gardens - all off the beaten track, yet all open to the public at some time during the gardening year.

From Brantwood, the spectacular Lake District home of the Victorian author, critic and amateur gardener John Ruskin, to Akenfield, a tiny former council house in Suffolk, Alan Titchmarsh samples the contrasting joys and problems of gardens of all shapes and sizes in every corner of the country. There is the magnificent garden at Hestercombe House in Gloucestershire, designed by Gertrude Jeykll; Brook Cottage, a picture-postcard garden in Oxfordshire; the brilliantly designed small garden at Cobblers, on the Kent/Sussex border; and the bizarre Kensington Roof Garden six floors up in the heart of London. Two superb National Trust gardens are also featured: the recently restored Flower and Kitchen Gardens at Calke Abbey in Derbyshire and the wonderful sub-tropical plant life of Overbecks, on the Salcombe estuary, in South Devon.

Alan Titchmarsh describes these as amongst the most marvellous gardens he has ever visited - an inspiration for gardeners everywhere.
