Recreating Eden – Season 4 – Horticultural Impressario

Award-winning music producer Tim Smit moved to Cornwall to set up a recording studio, but much to his surprise ended up falling in love with gardening. Having first restored an abandoned garden called the “Lost Gardens of Heligan”, he soon turned his interest to creating a global garden for the 21st century. Named the “Eden Project” but dubbed “the eighth wonder of the world”, Smit has created an enormous, sprawling conservatory where science, art and horticulture come together to tell the story of our dependence on the plant world.
