The Secret World of Gardens II
It's an extraordinary world of death and beauty - and it's as close as our backyards. This unique nature series will forever change the way we see our gardens. Time-lapse photography and macro-lenses uncover the mysterious world that's hidden in a common garden. With a shift in perspective, grass becomes a towering forest, molehills become mountains, and beetles are armoured, devouring giants. From bloodthirsty predators to the exotic world of blossoms, this series gives voice to the thousands of rarely-noticed creatures that live alongside us every day.
Watch as grasshoppers plow their way through your plants as their innocent cousin, the cricket, serenades them.
We explore the intimate relationship between bugs and plants that call your water garden home.
Assassins and stinkers, tarnished and shielded - true bugs are ubiquitous in the garden. Despite their brilliant colours and strange shapes, most people have never noticed them until now.
From the captivating beauty of a yellow finch to the predatory instincts of a swallow, we celebrate the unsung work of birds in the garden.
Explore the aggressive tendencies, chemical arsenals, and insect alliances that make weeds such a force to contend with in the garden.
