  • Around the World in 80 Gardens with Monty Don ( Thailand )

    First released in 2008 according to iplayer the BCC are re broadcasting these. This week was South East Asia. The first half an hour is Thailand. A bit of Jim Thompsons House some royal palaces and a guy called Mr Lek who grows stuff on the balconies of his house on a Klong. It is gentle show. Monty cant find what he calls an indigenous Thai gardening culture . He may be right.

    It is worth a watch. My wife certainly knew the names of many of the plants on Mr Leks verandas. So maybe there is a gardening culture Monty simply missed it as substance takes precedence over form.

    What do you reckon.

    It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are

    I watched it and enjoyed his perspectives on ' natural ' gardening.Think he could have picked a better place than the Bangkok klongs mind you .We visited a beautiful place/park pretty close to Trat that was created and maintained by the prisoners there.
