Monty Don's Paradise Gardens

Horticulturist Monty Don travels the Islamic world and beyond, from Morocco to India and Iran, in search of paradise gardens, uncovering the influence they have had around the globe. The Qur'an tells of these magical green spaces filled with flowers and fruit, where shade and water provide a haven from the harsh climate that dominates the Arab world. For Muslims, these gardens are an earthly vision of the true paradise awaiting believers in heaven.
