It was lights, camera, action for Bressingham Gardens as they were visited by BBC Gardener’s World last week.

Carol Klein and a BBC television crew came to the 17-acre gardens to record a feature for the programme.

Bressingham Garden’s Adrian Bloom said: “It so happens that, 40 years ago, Peter Seabrook came with the BBC, many more people, and quite different photographic equipment to do a programme of the newly-developed garden of mine at Foggy Bottom.

“So, it is 50 years since I put the first plant in my garden at Foggy Bottom, which, along with the 17 acres of Bressingham Gardens, are now world-renowned.

“Although we are not supposed to reveal what the programme is about, it is very complimentary to both the Bloom family and the gardens.

“At a time when much of the news is not positive, this continuing story and the importance of plants and gardens offers some relief.”

The episode will be aired on September 8.
