The Nineteenth Century: During the 1800s, British gardens become more exotic, more colorful, and more widely accessible than ever - a consequence of an expanding empire, scientific and technological innovation, and social change. Monty visits the most influential gardens of the period, including royal retreats such as Osborne, the very first public parks like Derby Arboretum, and the botanic gardens at Edinburgh and Kew.
