Witness the striking transformation as each season brings different sights, sounds, smells, and visitors Queen; to the foliage collected from the garden to decorate the Palace at Christmas. From its wildest corners, where it functions as one of the most important havens for wildlife in London, to its role as the sumptuous venue for an 8,000 strong Royal Garden Party, THE QUEEN'S GARDEN offers viewers privileged access and a unique perspective into a special place. the natural history of to the garden. Surprises, delights, and unusual and unexpected discoveries abound as wildlife and plant life are filmed in all their forms, both commonplace and rare, both by day and by night.

A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN!
Review by Cookie on 09/29/21 review stating A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN!
Having seen this video on PBS, when it became available for purchase we knew it was a video our family would enjoy many times! The photography of hidden areas of this garden are breath-taking, and something we knew we would never even be able to see in person. Yet, as gardeners ourselves, we learned interesting things about how the garden is continually improved and maintained. We consider it a treasure among the videos we own!

Fabulous Gardens / DVD
Review by Skylar on 07/17/20 review stating Fabulous Gardens / DVD
I cant wait to go back to England and hopefully these gardens are opened to the public. This DVD shows this unbelievable place. Once you see this DVD youll know why the Queen herself takes so much pride in it.

Can watch again and again
Review by Bggenie on 07/17/20 review stating Can watch again and again
This is a really good view for an Anglophile. Takes the viewer through the gardens of Buckingham Palace through the seasons; featuring the Queens annual garden party, search for elusive owl, delightful tale of young Princess Elizabeths garden adventures - even falling into the lake! Nicely narrated and quite entrancing.

Review by Billyboy53 on 07/17/20 review stating ELEGANT AND ENJOYABLE
A very beautiful film, quietly and elegantly narrated, visually splendid, and informative. It follows the garden at Buckingham Palace, which I had no idea was so large, all through the seasons, showing the flora and fauna in meticulous detail. I bought two more copies for my family.

Incredible time lapse photography!
Review by Nana on 07/17/20 review stating Incredible time lapse photography!
This documentary is truly a treasure! The garden at Buckingham Palace covers 39 acres and is far more than just a place for the Queen to host garden parties. This beautiful and unique garden is portrayed in all seasons of the year and there are surprises in the flora and fauna. I will visit this garden over and over again, such a beautifully done program. Especially enjoyed the historical bits.

BEAUTIFUL DVD!!
Review by Roberta A. on 07/17/20 review stating BEAUTIFUL DVD!!
I just LOVE this DVD! This documentary shows the Queens Gardens at Buckingham Palace through all four seasons of the year. Time-lapse photography and hidden cameras in birds nests and underground burrows highlight these beautiful gardens and nature. The history of the gardens and different flowers and trees are also highlighted and really interesting and informative. Through the hidden camera in one of the birds nest, you witness a family of young birds taking their first flight leaving the nest. The photography and narration is just beautiful. If you love gardening, Royalty and nature, you will not be disappointed!

Understanding Her Majestys Garden Plots
Review by Country L. on 07/17/20 review stating Understanding Her Majestys Garden Plots
I only wish I could of seen this PBS Show before I visited London! It was excellent of the Queen Mum to share her gardens with the public. Folks really need to understand what goes behind the planing of her gorgeous gardens! I dont think they have even a clue as how complex it is for planing and nutrients are needed. I also thought it was very helpful about the bee habitat and wildlife that supports the area within the city! Her garden staff and household make well use of the bounties that offer the estate. Keep up the excellent job and park areas for also the public to enjoy and stroll while visiting! Excellent film for any person who enjoys gardening and nature!

A Respite from Everyday Storms Stress
Review by Dpl on 07/17/20 review stating A Respite from Everyday Storms Stress
This is a beautifully filmed glimpse into a very exclusive retreat within the hustle and bustle of London. Lovely shots of wildlife (mostly avian) and flora, as well as the royals and their guests who are privileged to enjoy the secluded acres of greenery. Nice to learn that the queen is environmentally responsible and sees to it that her palace garden is run on green principles. Interesting footage of formal and informal interactions with her subjects/employees, but the wild creatures and spectacular flowers steal the show, as is fitting.
