Summary:This programme visits the Lake District, the natural water of Britain, where sedges, rush, ferns and the flowers of the water meadow can be found in abundance, and provide nature's guide to what to plant where. Malcolm Hutcheson, head gardener of Sizegh Castle in Cumbria, guides us round the national fern collection housed within its gardens. Garden designer Barbara Davies explains how a wildlife garden requires low maintenance and provides a haven for ponde life, and conservationist Peter Bullard reveals the secret life of a peat bog, which has taken 10,000 years to develop and is now under threat.
