Blog 21 Phew! Just finished another 5 hours of filming
Today we had our second session of being filmed for the Christmas Special of Gardeners’ World.
This was a “work in progress” session – pruning acers, taking the side-shoots off the bamboos, painting preservative on wooden containers, trimming the topiary animals. To save time, I had four large hanging baskets and had prepared each of them in the progressive stages of filling them – as though I was doing just one. We had “walk by” shots of us trundling the wheelbarrow, sack truck, containers filled with plants and dustbins brimming over with prunings.
At the end of it we were exhausted – and sat down with a bottle of wine to recharge our batteries!
We were also given two tickets for Gardeners’ World Live so aim to go on Sunday – take the car and see what bargains we can get when they start dismantling the stalls!
The next filming session will be at the beginning of August – between our next two open days. The plan is to film all four seasons, with time lapse photography of certain views. Just got to keep the garden up to scratch in the meantime!!!
