The Great Garden Revolution 2022 episode 1


The Great Garden Revolution 2022 episode 1: Errol, Joel and Bruce show us how to make a sensory garden complete with a tea bed, firepit and drought-loving paradise. Can they turn the Chattra’s garden into the stress-free space they crave?



Horticulturist Errol Reuben Fernandes joins returning team members designer Joel Bird and craftsman Bruce Kenneth on the show in which people around the country transform outdoor spaces with the help of a team of experts. A family in Chichester want a space where they can unwind after a stressful day, featuring a tea bed and a bespoke firepit.

They start with an “endless sea of gravel and weeds” in Chichester that its owners want to be transformed into an oasis of tranquillity and harmony. There are also film reports from the gardens of plantswoman Beth Chatto and DJ Greg James, but it’s the transformation — with its nod to Derek Jarman’s famous Dungeness garden — that is so delightful. You’ll just have to forgive the obvious product placement.

If your garden is less Chelsea Flower Show and more overgrown wasteland, this is the makeover show for you. Back for a second series, its idea is to inspire us to get out into our gardens and enjoy reconnecting with the natural world, but it’s aimed squarely at the novice.Down-to-earth presenters Joel Bird, Errol Reuben Fernandes and Bruce Kenneth are a cheery lot who don’t baffle us with horticultural science but instead offer wheelbarrow-loads of easy-to-follow tips and guidance. Errol’s masterclass on pruning and propagation make it look a cinch.
