Nottingham Post – Charlie Dimmock’s day at Trent uni

NOTTINGHAM Trent University’s Brackenhurst campus is to feature in a new TV gardening series.

Gardening expert and presenter Charlie Dimmock spent a day filming at the campus for the episode of Great British Garden Revival, due to be aired on BBC 2 on Thursday, January 9.

The series charts how Britain’s rich horticultural history is being lost.

The episode to feature Brackenhurst – home to the university’s School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences – focuses specifically on pond revival. The campus has a network of lakes, small ponds and water features.

Julia Davies, head of environmental science at Nottingham Trent, said: “We were thrilled to host the TV production crew and found it a fascinating experience to watch a programme being filmed in the grounds of the campus. We are very proud of the beautiful and historic garden at Brackenhurst, so it is wonderful that we will feature in this episode and that our wildlife will benefit from the pond designed and created by Charlie.”
