Cotswold TV last year ran a monthly Gardening series that you can find on Stroud Community TV. This year they film Paul Moir & Steve Quinton hosting ‘Ask Rococo’ – a new gardening show from Painswick Rococo Garden. Each episode will contain a new Gardening Tip.

More about Rococo: 

Situated outside the beautiful Cotswold town of Painswick, and famous for its snowdrop display, the Rococo Garden is a fascinating step back to a flamboyant and sensual period of English Garden Design. This gem of a garden, which was originally laid out in the early 18th century, is set in a hidden Cotswold valley with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. A magazine article of 1753, describing this style of garden, finished with the line …….You are taken to a pompous and gilded building, consecrated to Venus for no other purpose that the squire riots here in vulgar love with a couple of orange wenches from the local play-house. It seems he was unimpressed with the frivolity of the owners of these gardens. We will leave you to judge for yourselves and we hope this site will help you plan your visit and give you an insight to our magical Garden.
