Twice Upon a Garden

Filmed through the changing seasons, 'Twice Upon a Garden' captures the lush beauty of the historic Reford Gardens while intimately portraying the bond between Elsie and her great grandson, historian Alexander Reford - who took over the Gardens in the mid-90s. Both Elsie and Alexander reinvented the art of gardening with passion and daring: visitors are swept away by the rare plants in Elsie's classic English garden and enthralled by Alexander's cutting-edge International Garden Festival. Past and present, traditional and avant-garde are linked by stunning cinematography and evocative archival photos.

The DVD would make a lovely gift paired with Elsie's Paradise: The Reford Gardens
Blogs that have visited the gardens Pruned.
Interesting interview with Alexander Reford at Mocoloco
