Summary

If you think of a typical gardening show when you hear the title The Wild Gardener, you’re on the wrong track. This sitcom-style series is a very special kind of gardening guide. Starting with his own garden, the “Wild Gardener” aims to inspire viewers to fall in love with gardens and with nature in general, and to foster respect for life on our planet – with a healthy dose of comedy and provocation. For plant lovers, gardeners, and anyone thinking about becoming one, this show gives advice and reveals tricks that can easily be put into practice and are not always found in gardening guidebooks.
