"Former student of Kew's School of Horticulture, Alan Titchmarsh, narrates this story of a year behind-the-scenes at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. This UNESCO World Heritage Site attracts over a million visitors each year, all eager to enjoy the beautiful gardens and magnificent glasshouses. This second series also visits Kew's country estate, Wakehurst Place, where rare creatures and plants make their home in protected woodlands and ventures as far afield as Burkino Faso and Mali where the seed collectors from the Millennium Seedbank are keen to catalogue existing plants and find new species. There is also a visit to Australia's Royal Botanical Gardens to see the once endangered Wollemi Pine. Back in the gardens there is a royal visit to prepare for when Her Majesty the Queen helps the gardens celebrate their World Heritage Site status although disaster strikes before the visit of Prince Charles and PrinceTurki of Saudi Arabia when bad weather forces the gardens to close for the first time in 15 years"--Container.
