Christine Walkden's balloon odyssey takes her to the Borders region of Scotland, where she discovers the role art and literature play in creating memorable gardens.

At Sir Walter Scott's Abbotsford she tries her hand at fly-fishing and meets Jeannette, whose family history there spans a century. At Little Sparta she explores a garden poem. And we hear how the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh came into being.
