This week we have the dramatic story of plant hunter Tom Hart Dyke, who headed off into the Columbian jungle with his companion, Paul Winder, in the year 2000, where they were kidnapped, held hostage for 9 months and given up for dead.
During Tom's ordeal, he began plans for a garden that would contain plants from around the globe planted in their respective continents of origin. On his return, he did just that, at his family home of Lullingstone Castle, where he also showcases his passion for orchids, plant heritage and cutting-edge horticulture.
