Wild About Your Garden REPACK
The original broadcast dates on BBC 1 are shown in each file name
[Color=blue]Episode 1 - Tales from the Riverbank
The series kicks off in a small back garden in Crayford, Kent. It is the kind of garden that many of us have: a manicured lawn with narrow borders around the edges. It is home to Betty, a lovely lady who cannot understand why she never sees butterflies these days. She has put up bird feeders, but is not attracting any of our feathered friends. In fact, she misses wildlife so much that she has gathered a menagerie of plastic animals to fill the gap.
Cue BBC1's man of action Nick Knowles, award-winning garden designer Chris Beardshaw and wildlife buff Ellie Harrison. The Wild About Your Garden crew are on a mission to attract the real thing into Betty's garden. It is the ultimate reverse make over, as the garden has to go backwards before it can go forwards. They rip out over ten tons of concrete and crazy paving to make way for hundreds of plants plus fourteen fully mature trees, one which weighs as much as a couple of cars!
And while they are there, Ellie realises the team can help save Britain's most endangered mammal, the water vole. Betty might need some convincing, though, as she thinks they look like rats!
[Color=blue]Episode 2 - Three Badgers and a Baby
The Wild About Your Garden trio are in the city of Bristol, taking on a garden belonging to Mark and Fiona, who is heavily pregnant. Even though they live on the edge of a city, they're desperate for their baby to grow up with wildlife close at hand. It may sound simple, but the team has just four days and their neglected plot hasn't been touched in over 20 years.
Enter Nick Knowles, along with award winning garden designer Chris Beardshaw and wildlife specialist Ellie Harrison. But there's a storm brewing. Ellie wants to entice badgers into the garden, an idea that Chris thinks is horticultural suicide, leaving Nick to referee between the two camps.
The clock is ticking, so the team bury their differences and get stuck in for four gruelling days of digging, building and planting. Chris, ambitious as ever, designs a pond so vast that the local fire brigade are needed to fill it! Nick's brawn is called upon to construct a huge wooden hide, and Ellie builds an impressive badger sett. But the big question is, after all their hard graft, will badgers or any other wildlife start calling this place home?
[Color=blue]Episode 3 - Code Red
In the third programme in the series, the Wild About Your Garden team face their toughest challenge yet: to attract the rare red squirrel to a barren garden in Dundee. The garden belongs to Donna, Kerry and their two children, Jake and Millana. The McLoughins run a massage therapy business, but there's little time for meditation on this job.
Wildlife specialist Ellie seeks refuge from the chaos of the garden, so takes Donna and Millana to the magnificent Cairngorms, one of the last strongholds of the red squirrel, to try and catch a glimpse of this extraordinary animal.
As usual, designer Chris has big plans. With a huge pond and sculpted earthwork to build, he has also ordered in truck loads of plants. On top of this, the project is beset by problems on a massive scale as the team contend with broken diggers and a lethal 1000 watt cable just inches under the soil, which brings work to a shuddering halt.
Undeterred, Nick tries to convince the locals to plant trees in every garden to create a red squirrel runway, straight from the local woods into the family's garden.
[Color=blue]Episode 4 - Night Garden
In the fourth programme of this new series the Wild About Your Garden team face a rather prickly problem in Birmingham. Annie and Andy's garden is more wild to the eye than wildlife-friendly but it doesn't take long for Ellie Harrison to see an opportunity to help a British garden favourite, the hedgehog.
With Ellie on a crusade to help nocturnal wildlife, garden maestro Chris Beardshaw sets to work on the ambitious task of building a Gothic ruin, the centrepiece of his night garden. It is difficult to rein in his ambition, as Nick Knowles soon discovers. With Chris suggesting they build a canal and Ellie making moth-feeding stations from old socks and treacle, Nick begins to suspect he is the only sane one left!
If this wasn't enough, the family are keen for a garden, complete with vegetable patch, that will allow them to enjoy the good life. Not to be outdone, Ellie hatches a plan for some rare breed chickens. But can you create a formal garden with a veg patch that will attract wildlife?
[Color=blue]Episode 5 - The Birds and the Bees
The Wild About Your Garden team are in Milton Keynes, home to the Gibbons family.
Builder Pete's idea of gardening is to bring in a JCB and a blow torch. His meddling has managed to cause nigh on irreparable damage to the family's garden, much to his wife Anne's despair. Their teenage son Andrew wants wildlife, but the only thing visible from the kitchen window are the family's huge dogs.
Pete has to stand by as Nick Knowles and the team strip out all of his building projects in order to transform this junkyard with rats into a wildlife haven. Before anything can grow in this urban wasteland, designer Chris Beardshaw must perform a minor miracle to make the soil fertile enough to plant anything at all. Wildlife buff Ellie Harrison wants to help dangerously-declining bumble and honey bee populations and offer one of our favourite garden birds a place to call home. It is a massive task but somehow even the dogs end up doing their bit to help.
[Color=blue]Episode 6 - Minibeasts
In the last programme in this series the Wild About Your Garden team face a truly daunting mission as they take on a small garden surrounded by housing in the shadow of one of London's busiest roads, the North Circular. What wildlife could they possible attract here?
It's a tough challenge for wildlife buff Ellie Harrison who comes up with some truly bizarre suggestions to save some truly bizarre creatures. Take Britain's largest insect, the Stag Beetle: this giant lives underground as a larvae, eating rotting wood for seven years only to emerge and enjoy four weeks of life before dropping dead. The kids, Kiera aged six and Shay aged three, are easy to win over but can the team sell the idea to Mum and Dad too?
Garden designer extraordinaire Chris Beardshaw goes all primeval and creates an incredible bog garden including trees which go in roots up. But when he makes the mistake of leaving his masterpiece for a few hours to judge at a flower show, Nick Knowles takes it upon himself to acquire a large shed and install in the garden.
