Geoff Hamilton's Paradise Gardens (BBC 1997)
In his last ever series, Geoff Hamilton shows us how to create and plant a secluded, peaceful garden - a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The six-part series demonstrates how to use scent and colour, as well as build water features and lure wildlife into your outdoor paradise.
Create a heaven on earth in your own back yard, using climbers, patios, hedges, arbours and bowers to make a garden retreat.
Geoff Hamilton was undoubtedly Britain's most popular gardener, with his blend of down-to-earth practical advice, moneysaving ideas and sheer enthusiasm for everything to do with gardening. During the 1980s and '90s his own garden in Rutland, called 'Barnsdale', became almost as familiar to the millions of TV viewers who tuned in to BBC 2's Gardeners' World each week as their own back yard.
Geoff died of a heart attack in August 1996 while taking part in a charity bike ride, just before completing this series. His twin brother, Tony, speaks those parts of the commentary that Geoff was unable to record.

The "Geoff Hamilton New Gardeners Foundation" is a bursary at his old horticultural college, set up in his memory to fund students of any age and level of practical experience. It is worth up to £4,000. They invite applicants (and perhaps accept donations!).
