Channel 4's The Great Garden Revolution returns this summer, with Errol Reuben Fernandes, head of horticulture at the Horniman Museum and Gardens, making his co-presenting debut alongside designer Joel Bird and craftsman Bruce Kenneth. Together, the trio will use their expertise to transform under-utilised garden spaces, giving viewers a variety of tips, tricks and ideas they can immediately put into action. Errol Reuben Fernandes commented: “I am really looking forward to joining the team and being a part of this series. I hope to be able to engage and inspire through my own passion for plants and gardening, as well as champion ecological and sustainable gardening practices that support wildlife and are environmentally friendly. I want to demonstrate that we can garden with this approach and still create spaces that are, immersive, stimulating and beautiful for us too.” The 4 x 60' series is produced by Rumpus Media for Channel 4.
