Gadget Show visits Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Five's The Gadget Show visited Birmingham Botanical Gardens to try out the latest in garden gadgets. The team was assessing the cutting qualities of very modern mowers on the manicured lawns, helped by head gardener Ed Skinner (with The Gadget Show team Jason Bradbury, Suzi Perry and Jon Bentley). Birmingham Botanical Gardens chief executive James Wheeler said: "As an independent charity with limited funding, our staff work very hard to constantly improve and maintain the gardens. So we welcomed the opportunity to see what modern technology has to offer - we would love to consider investing in any of the machines they tried."
