Once glorious with exotic blooms, an abandoned Oxfordshire garden is repossessed by nature. The gardener has gone and in his absence the manicured lawn, borders, and trellises have been choked by a jungle of bindweed, nettles and ivy. But there is order here - no plagues of pests as predators and prey exist in uneasy harmony. Unsprayed and unharmed, new life flourishes. Spindly harvestmen, designed to inspire the creators of science fantasy forage for carrion, wasps construct paper nests, slow-worms engage in sinuous embrace, and bank voles play hide-and-seek with the farm cat. Written and narrated by Barry Paine.
