TV gardening legend Monty Don will be presenting a new show on BBC Two called Monty Don’s Adriatic Gardens.
The series will take place in three parts and see Monty travelling to different countries to discover how Venetians on the Adriatic coast have influenced a range of public and private gardens.
On his journey, he will uncover the impact that “history, climate change and culture have had on the people who live there,” according to a release.
Each episode will focus on a different country, beginning with Venice which he explores by barge.
The second episode sees Monty Don exploring Croatia, beginning in Trieste. Finally, the presenter takes us on a garden discovery around Greece, from the island of Corfu to the Greek capital of Athens.
Over the series Monty visits olive groves, deforestation projects, vineyards and natural lakes to uncover the fascinating history and lasting legacy of Adriatic gardens across Europe.
The first episode will air tomorrow, Friday 7 January on BBC Two at 8pm. The next episodes will be available at the same time over the following two Fridays (14 and 21 respectively). You will also be able to catch up on BBC iPlayer.
Monty Don's Adriatic Gardens starts Friday 7th January at 8pm on BBC Two.
