GEOFF HAMILTON'S DVD (ジェフ・ハミルトンのDVD)


I introduced a popular English gardener the late Geoff Hamilton  in my blog last February.  After that, I found that a DVD collection of his BBC gardening programmes were released.  I have been looking for it in internet trading, and at last I have got it.


(イギリスでとても人気のあったガーデナーで今は亡きジェフ・ハミルトン氏を2月にこのブログで紹介しました。そのあと、彼のイギリス国営放送での園芸番組のDVDが発売されていることを知りました。インターネット通販で探して、ついに手にいれました。)


I watched some programmes right away, and I really felt that a moving picture is worth a thousand words.  I am continuing to translate his book 'The Ornamental Kitchen Garden' in Japanese.  This DVD set is very useful for it.


(すぐにいくつかの番組を見て、動画でみると本を読むよりはるかによくわかることを実感しました。彼のこの「オーナメンタル・キッチン・ガーデン」という本の日本語への翻訳を続けています。とてもこのDVDは役に立ちそうです。)

  1. Geoff Hamilton was a truly inspirational gardener. If ever you come to England again visit Barnsdale. The small gardens he created for each TV series have been maintained and are lovely to look at.

    As you know, I am a huge fan of Geoff Hamilton and it is due to his enthusiasm that I started gardening. Barnsdale is a lovely place to visit - I have put a few visits I made over the years on my blog. (My mum lives very near Barnsdale). I bought the 'Geoff Hamilton' rose as a tribute and often say a quiet 'thank you' to him for being so encouraging and giving me a hobby I truly love.
    Best wishes
