A year in the garden BBC documentary project

Garden in a Year project

Garden in a Year project

The BBC are searching for a row of suburban back gardens in or near London to take part in an exciting documentary following, recording and filming the natural history in your garden over the course of a year.  If you are interested in wildlife, and want to know about what’s in your garden, we want to hear from you!

Any and all styles of garden are fine – the messier the better, just as long as they’re not completely concrete.

Plus points are:

  • Having a pond somewhere in the row of gardens
  • Having well established trees somewhere in the row of gardens
  • Having a well-established garden – ie not a new build
  • Having a compost heap amongst the gardens
  • Recent sightings of foxes, hedgehogs, bats etc.
  • Multiple home owners in the row interested in the project (although this isn’t essential)
  • A household interested in wildlife, and happy to get their hands dirty!

If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved in we want to hear from you. Please contact the BBC giving your address, and a brief description of your own garden and the gardens in your row.
