Synopsis:
Monty Don travels through France taking us on a journey which mixes some of the most famous, important and historic gardens in the world. From the 'Gardens of Power' of the Versailles Palace and the 'Gourmet Gardens' that put the food into the French Gardens, to the 'Artistic Gardens' that so inspired the finest works of Monet and Cezanne. This highly personal journey for Monty exploring the splendour of these fine gardens reveals what it is about the French gardens that fascinate him so much.

Gardens of Power and Passion
Stories behind France's most important historical gardens. Monty sees how throughout history the French have used gardens as a public expression of money, power and passion.
The Gourmet Garden
The Gourmet Garden turns to the French love of food and finds out how this has influenced their gardens. Monty travels to some of the most famous 'potager' or kitchen gardens, where vegetables and flowers are planted together in elaborate and beautiful displays.
The Artistic Garden
Monty turns to France's famous artistic tradition to see what influence it has had on the country's gardens. He visits the garden of impressionist Claude Monet, who planted and painted his garden for half his life. Monty also matches paintings to the garden of Paul Cezanne.
