Monty Don to present new BBC gardening series

Monty Don is to present a new gardening series on the BBC from the same producers of his Around the World in 80 Gardens series.

The series Big Dreams, Small Spaces films over the next six months and is five episodes long. Broadcast will probably be in spring 2014.

Producers say the series is not a makeover show and that they want "ambitious designs" from  homeowners about which they will be advised by Don.

Lion TV says it is producing the series "about people who are planning extraordinary gardens in ordinary plots".

The producers ask: "Do you want to recreate your favourite place, holiday destination, era or theme on your own patch of land? Or anything else exciting and beautiful?"

Alison Kirkham commissioned the series and Alexandra Henderson is producing for Lion.
