Ep. 1 - Gardens of Power and Passion

Monty Don's French Gardens

Horticulturist Monty Don tells the stories behind France's most important historic gardens. These include elaborate walled gardens designed to please the mistress - and then the wife - of a king, magnificent displays of flowers and fountains that incited violent jealousy in another monarch, and a modern-day chateau garden that came close to bankrupting its owner. Throughout history, the French have used gardens as a public expression of money, power and passion.
