Whether you are seasoned or inexperienced in matters of gardening or landscaping, Prime Video has a quality collection of gardening and landscaping shows and documentary films that will both educate and inspire you. Though most of the programming is British, you will quickly appreciate their expert, reverent and passionate approach to all things pertaining to gardening and outdoor landscapes.

Well-known British Horticulturist and TV-Host Monty Don matter-of-factly and amusingly reflects in one episode of Gardeners’ World that “gardening is adults going out to play”.
