Carol Klein is a regular presenter of Gardeners' World, where her down-to-earth approach has made her a hugely popular figure. She first appeared on the programme in the late 1990s when Geoff Hamilton featured the garden at her North Devon home, Glebe Cottage. In 2014, Life In A Cottage Garden was filmed at her property, and she was also seen on The Great British Garden Revival, a BBC series that won TV Broadcast of the Year at the Garden Media Guild Awards. Carol has a degree in Fine Art and spent many years teaching art in schools. She later ran a nursery from her home, Glebe Cottage, and showed at Chelsea for many year, so her hobby eventually became her career.
Doesn't the sight of a flowering cherry festooned with blossom, fill you with joy? To see these beautiful trees in their native home and appreciate their significance in Japanese culture will be wonderful. I hope you can join me.Carol Klein
