Next Episode of The Great Garden Revolution is
Designer Joel Bird, ecological gardener Poppy Okotcha and craftsman Bruce Kenneth help us revolutionise our outdoor space and inspire us to get out into our gardens.
The first episode features tips on creating gardens for the whole family to enjoy, as the team make a barrel pond, a forest garden, a social hub with a barbecue and seating area, and a beautifully crafted chair. They also pay a visit to a family of five adults in London, and offer tips on making the best use of their space.
The experts focus on wild gardens that celebrate nature. Poppy Okotcha creates a wild planting design that requires little maintenance, Joel Bird demonstrates how to make a living tipi, and Bruce Kenneth builds a table with its own herb patch and built-in bar. The team also visits a family in the Pennine hills looking for an outside space that goes with their view of the Saddleworth countryside.
Joel Bird creates an incredible teaching shed with a front that's covered in habitats for wildlife, while Poppy Okotcha creates sensory beds and vertical planting that's perfect for any smaller garden. The team also visit the Hanifs, who live in the middle of Birmingham, but want to create a forest school that the whole community can benefit from.
In an episode dedicated to kitchen gardens and growing vegetables, herbs and fruit, the team come to the aid of two chefs in Wakefield who need a hand getting started at growing their own produce. Poppy Okotcha demonstrates which vegetables grow well in the same plots, Joel Bird plants a bee highway and creates a mushroom log, and Bruce Kenneth builds a bespoke greenhouse made from upcycled stained glass. Plus, comedian Tom Allen gives a tour of his own garden space.
