You do not need to know anything about a plant to know that it is beautiful.
Lately I've been a wee bit obsessed with the BBC show Big Dreams, Small Spaces. In it, Britain's most famous gardener (Monty Don) helps people realize their gardening dreams. The spaces they are working with are generally not only small, but pretty much a wreck, too. It is inspiring to see them following through and creating beautiful, personalized gardens. I feel like I've learned a lot from the show and can sort of imagine what Monty Don would advise me about my own plants.
Big Dreams, Small Spaces is on Amazon and Netflix

Have you ever seen The Great British Bake-Off? I loved that, too. I feel like if you like GBBO, you might as well try BDSS and vice versa.
