In this final programme, Monty explores the extraordinary scenery of the west coast of America.

He begins his journey in Arizona, where he learns about cacti and marvels at the sight of them in the desert and in private gardens, where they have replaced traditional plants and lawns.

From there, Monty travels to Palm Springs, and visits famous gardens made for their owners, from film stars to big businessmen and politicians, all gathering to enjoy the sunshine during the winter months and relax, enjoying their outside spaces and playing golf. Los Angeles is Monty’s next stop, where he slips into a more traditional form of transport to cruise around some fascinating Hollywood homes and also learn about how school children are taking up gardening.

The last stop of this journey is Seattle, where Monty visits a tropical get away for one of the city’s main workforces and some beautiful green spaces just outside the city.
