Presented by Peter Thoday and Harry Dodson, this series goes behind the high redbrick walls of Chilton Foliat in Berkshire to follow the restoration of a traditional kitchen garden. In 'The Victorian Flower Garden' Harry re-creates horticultural history to demonstrate how simple and exotic flowers were cultivated. He also finds time to create the wonderful floral decorations at a Victorian wedding and a grand musical. In 'The Victorian Kitchen' Harry is joined by Ruth Mott to revive the relationship between head gardener and cook of a large country house to show how meals were prepared in Victorian times.
