BBC4 reveals gardening season plus Garden Revival return

BBC4 is to run a series of gardening programmes from mid-April focussing on heritage gardens, suburban gardens, bees, soil and mushrooms.

Great Dixter, Stowe, Biddulph Grange and Nyman's will feature in the four-part British Gardens in Time, presented by Chris Beardshaw, Andrea Wulf and National Trust head gardener Alan Power.

Historian Michael Collins will present a show on suburban gardens, broadcaster Martha Kearney will tackle beekeeping in four hour-long shows, and Professor Richard Fortey will present a programme on fungi. Beardshaw will also present a show on soil.

Meanwhile, the BBC has recommissioned The Great British Garden Revival from Outline Productions. The first series ran in December 2013-January 2014. The BBC could not provide details of presenters, subjects or transmission dates.
