HGTV will bring for the first time to the MENA region a host of gardening shows featuring Monty Don, one of the world’s best-loved gardening gurus. In that visually stunning series, Around the World in 80 Gardens, renowned journalist and horticulturalist Monty Don is to showcase some of the most beautiful, intriguing and unusual gardens in the world.
Each episode will feature a spectrum of wild and curated landscapes across a variety of international locations, including Cuba, Japan and New Zealand. Along each journey, Monty will provide expert commentary on how these horticultural masterpieces were created and the people behind them.
“We are excited to have extended our catalogue with none other than Monty Don. Monty knows better than most that every garden tells a story, and all stories, even when set in a garden, are always about people – his knowledge and passion for uncovering not just the plants, but the intriguing stories of the countries visited are sure to engage viewers across the region.” Commented Phillip Luff, Managing Director, UK & EMEA Scripps Networks Interactive.
