Scottish park features in Japanese TV series

Duthie Park is shortlisted for best UK garden in Japanese programme

Japanese gardeners are to get a chance to vote for what they think are Britain’s best gardens. Their choices will be featured on a live broadcast from the Hampton Court flower show in July. The Rose Mountain, a feature of Duthie Park in Aberdeen, is on the list from which voters can choose. NHK Educational, a subsidiary of NHK, the public broadcaster in Japan, is producing a programme about British gardens. NHK Educational programme co-ordinator Saeko Konishi said: “As part of the preparation for our programme, we will publish a pamphlet listing 50 of the best UK gardens. It will be distributed at various flower and garden shows between March and the end of April, and the gardening public will be invited to vote on the 10 gardens they would most like to see in our programme.” Filming is scheduled to take place between May and June. Aberdeen City Council’s principal parks and countryside officer Colin Stuart said: “We’re delighted that the horticultural excellence of the rose garden in Duthie Park has been recognised in this way.”
