-Konichiwa.

0:00:020:00:04

-What we have here

-is a pair of false teeth.

0:00:060:00:10

-A brewery in the corner.

0:00:100:00:11

-A brewery in the corner.

-

-We can run around here.

0:00:110:00:14

-What a view! It belongs more

-to Africa than West Wales.

0:00:140:00:17

-Costa del Betws.

0:00:180:00:19

-Everyone loves it.

0:00:210:00:23

-Be kind to me, lads.

0:00:230:00:25

-It's in the Good Food Guide

-for molluscs.

0:00:250:00:28

-Cefn Cribwr is on top of a hill,

-between Bridgend and Port Talbot.

0:00:400:00:45

-The area was closely bound

-to the iron and coal industries...

0:00:480:00:52

-..during the Industrial Revolution.

0:00:530:00:55

-These rows of terraced houses

-are a reflection of that time.

0:00:560:01:00

-In Trem-y-waun, at the end

-of this particular terrace...

0:01:010:01:05

-..John and Carole Mason have created

-a wonderful haven in their garden.

0:01:060:01:11

-We moved here when we got married

-and we've been here ever since.

0:01:210:01:26

-We planted everything

-in this garden.

0:01:270:01:29

-We're the garden in...

0:01:290:01:31

-.."Hurt no living thing - ladybird,

-butterfly or moth with dusty wing."

0:01:310:01:35

-We are, aren't we?

0:01:360:01:37

-We are, aren't we?

-

-There's a place for everything.

0:01:370:01:39

-Everything finds its place perfectly

-in this wonderful garden.

0:01:420:01:47

-John and Carole,

-two former teachers...

0:01:470:01:50

-..expanded the garden to reflect

-their personalities and interests.

0:01:510:01:56

-We had an opportunity to buy

-a strip of land alongside...

0:01:560:02:01

-..and more land at the back,

-the old allotments.

0:02:020:02:06

-The expansion has provided them

-with a perfect garden to enjoy...

0:02:070:02:12

-..and a place where their grandsons

-can run free in the open air.

0:02:130:02:17

-It's important to John and Carole

-as nature lovers.

0:02:240:02:29

-We started to develop paths.

0:02:320:02:34

-We developed the paths

-for the children...

0:02:340:02:37

-..to discover parts of the garden

-on their scooters and bikes.

0:02:370:02:41

-Hide-and-seek is fantastic!

0:02:420:02:43

-Hide-and-seek is fantastic!

-

-Playing hide-and-seek.

0:02:430:02:45

-Carole, tell me more

-about this part.

0:02:480:02:51

-We call this the Italian garden

-but it's not really Italian.

0:02:510:02:55

-It's more of a fern...

0:02:560:02:58

-..castor oil plant and ivy garden.

0:02:590:03:01

-Those are the plants

-that grow in the shade.

0:03:020:03:05

-You have many interesting stones.

0:03:060:03:09

-This stone came from

-the Siloam graveyard...

0:03:090:03:13

-..the chapel halfway down the road.

0:03:140:03:16

-John tends to collect bricks

-whenever he finds them.

0:03:170:03:20

-He used them to build the wall.

0:03:210:03:23

-I like it, the sound of the water

-gives it a tranquil atmosphere.

0:03:230:03:29

-About two years ago, when we opened

-the garden to the public...

0:03:320:03:36

-..we closed the garden one day

-at 5.00pm.

0:03:360:03:39

-We were walking around the garden

-at the end of a hot day.

0:03:390:03:44

-We came down here and a woman

-was fast asleep on the bench.

0:03:440:03:49

-She was just enjoying herself.

0:03:490:03:52

-Isn't that lovely?

-Someone felt so relaxed in a garden.

0:03:530:03:59

-There's no way of not relaxing

-as you wander around this garden.

0:04:010:04:06

-You can enjoy the numerous artworks

-which peer around every corner.

0:04:060:04:11

-They include sheep!

0:04:140:04:16

-That's Carole's handiwork.

0:04:160:04:18

-She made these.

0:04:190:04:21

-At one time...

0:04:210:04:22

-..Picasso went through

-his Blue Period.

0:04:230:04:26

-I went through my Sheep Period!

0:04:260:04:29

-You also keep hens.

0:04:310:04:34

-The hens

-are a natural part of the garden.

0:04:340:04:39

-We only have four right now.

0:04:390:04:41

-Each one lays eggs every day.

0:04:420:04:44

-They're fantastic.

0:04:440:04:46

-You also use the garden.

0:04:460:04:48

-I noticed you had

-your own little corners.

0:04:490:04:51

-Different sheds.

0:04:520:04:54

-I call them kingdoms.

-My kingdom is my shed.

0:04:540:04:59

-Carole's work can be seen

-in the garden...

0:05:010:05:04

-..while John's work

-can be found in his kingdom.

0:05:040:05:07

-There are sheds and there are sheds.

0:05:080:05:11

-You could sleep in this one.

-if you had a fireplace.

0:05:110:05:14

-It's wonderful.

0:05:150:05:16

-I've spent the night down here,

-with a fire.

0:05:160:05:21

-I do a lot of painting here.

0:05:220:05:24

-There are a lot of paintings

-of plants.

0:05:240:05:27

-Evidently, the garden inspires you.

0:05:280:05:31

-Nature inspires me. Butterflies.

0:05:310:05:34

-Sheep, of course.

0:05:340:05:36

-Sheep are part of the natural world.

0:05:360:05:39

-From sheep to dogs

-to characters from Dylan Thomas.

0:05:390:05:43

-It's a real cross-section.

0:05:440:05:45

-What's the next step -

-an extension?

0:05:460:05:48

-There was talk of a small brewery

-in the corner.

0:05:480:05:52

-Don't tell the wife!

0:05:530:05:55

-While John enjoys his shed,

-Carole's Cwtch is far more feminine.

0:05:570:06:02

-I fill it with objects that came

-from John's parents' house.

0:06:080:06:13

-Plates, mugs, commemorative mugs.

-I remember those times.

0:06:140:06:18

-Yes, they're so important,

-aren't they?

0:06:180:06:22

-We keep things,

-we don't get rid of them.

0:06:220:06:25

-They'll be inherited one day.

0:06:260:06:28

-I like this garden

-because it's personal.

0:06:340:06:37

-It's colourful, creatively quirky

-with a heavy dose of humour.

0:06:370:06:42

-It reflects the personalities

-of John and Carole.

0:06:430:06:46

-A toilet in the allotment!

0:06:460:06:48

-A toilet in the allotment!

-

-Why not?

0:06:480:06:49

-It makes a wonderful plant pot.

0:06:490:06:52

-It's a lovely pot.

0:06:530:06:55

-It's so effective.

0:06:550:06:58

-With a bend down the back...

0:06:580:07:00

-..the water never becomes stagnant.

0:07:000:07:03

-It flows out through the back.

0:07:040:07:05

-It flows out through the back.

-

-But there's no flush!

0:07:050:07:07

-You have a lot of large trees. Were

-they here or did you plant them?

0:07:090:07:14

-We planted them all.

0:07:140:07:16

-You turn around, 10 years have

-passed, and there's a tree there.

0:07:160:07:20

-They give the garden

-shape and structure.

0:07:210:07:23

-They also produce little tunnels.

0:07:240:07:26

-For me, trees are everything.

-They're so important.

0:07:260:07:30

-They create

-a wonderful atmosphere.

0:07:300:07:33

-As well as trees, poetry

-is also close to John's heart.

0:07:470:07:51

-He uses the walls of his sheds

-to exhibit poems.

0:07:510:07:55

-"Last night, I saw amazing an sight

0:08:010:08:04

-"I saw a witch flying,

-her hair hovering in the wind."

0:08:040:08:09

-Cymylau by Rhys Nicholas.

0:08:090:08:11

-I like the idea of being able

-to recite some of the words...

0:08:110:08:16

-..like a song.

0:08:170:08:19

-What interests you as gardeners?

-What do you like growing, Carole?

0:08:190:08:23

-I'm responsible for the vegetables.

0:08:240:08:27

-I like coming out to plant seeds.

0:08:270:08:30

-I plant them and sow the vegetables.

0:08:310:08:33

-I like pottering.

0:08:340:08:36

-I like every part of the garden.

0:08:360:08:38

-What do you like about the garden?

0:08:390:08:41

-To be honest, drinking a glass

-of wine in the garden.

0:08:410:08:44

-When the sun sets over there,

-the light is fantastic.

0:08:450:08:48

-It's spectacular.

0:08:490:08:50

-I can't think of a better way

-to enjoy this garden.

0:08:500:08:54

-I'll bring a bottle with me

-next time.

0:08:550:08:57

-Every city is packed

-with beautiful gardens.

0:09:180:09:22

-Cardiff is no exception.

0:09:220:09:24

-In North Cardiff, one colourful

-garden can be seen from afar.

0:09:240:09:29

-This is the garden

-of John and Peta Davies.

0:09:290:09:32

-John has certainly been busy.

0:09:330:09:35

-When I was a boy, Dad gave me

-a section of the garden.

0:09:350:09:41

-He said,

-"Right, you're in charge of that."

0:09:410:09:45

-I planted salad seeds -

-lettuce, onions and so on.

0:09:450:09:50

-It was there right from the start.

0:09:510:09:54

-What's your main interest?

0:09:540:09:57

-I like Camellia bushes.

-They bloom early in the year.

0:09:570:10:02

-There are one or two in the front,

-they can be in bloom in January.

0:10:020:10:07

-In summer...

0:10:070:10:09

-..the flower we always have

-is the Begonia.

0:10:100:10:14

-There are different types

-of Begonias.

0:10:140:10:16

-What I call the bedding Begonia...

0:10:170:10:19

-..that survives,

-water or not, hot or cold...

0:10:200:10:25

-..without any fuss.

0:10:270:10:29

-Begonia is the best stock.

0:10:290:10:31

-Begonia is the best stock.

-

-It's the gardener's friend.

0:10:310:10:32

-It allows you to put your feet up.

0:10:330:10:35

-Precisely.

0:10:350:10:38

-One thing is certain,

-John seldom puts his feet up.

0:10:400:10:43

-Every minute of his spare time

-is spent...

0:10:440:10:47

-..on his obsession with the garden.

0:10:470:10:49

-After retiring,

-I had more time on my hands.

0:10:580:11:01

-I enrolled at Coleg Pencoed...

0:11:010:11:05

-..to study a City and Guilds

-in Gardening.

0:11:050:11:08

-I learnt how and when to prune.

0:11:100:11:13

-Once I'd learnt the skills...

0:11:140:11:16

-..I moved off the bedding plants

-towards the perennials.

0:11:160:11:22

-At the moment,

-perennials are my main interest.

0:11:230:11:27

-John's other interest is competing.

0:11:310:11:33

-His membership of the Chrysanthemum

-Society and Dahlia Society...

0:11:330:11:38

-..gives him the opportunity

-to shine.

0:11:380:11:41

-I've been competing for three years.

0:11:470:11:50

-The first time - novice.

0:11:500:11:52

-You can remain a novice...

0:11:530:11:55

-..until you win a first prize

-two or three times.

0:11:550:11:59

-I've passed that...

0:12:000:12:02

-..with the Chrysanthemums.

0:12:020:12:04

-With the Dahlias...

0:12:050:12:07

-..I think I have another year to go.

0:12:080:12:10

-Then, as soon as you're up

-with the top boys...

0:12:110:12:14

-..they compete in Chelsea.

0:12:140:12:16

-You need the desire

-to do something like that.

0:12:160:12:20

-You must have that competitive edge.

0:12:200:12:23

-Do you think it's in you?

0:12:230:12:25

-I played cricket for years.

-I was always competitive.

0:12:260:12:31

-If I failed when bowling,

-I'd make it up with the bat.

0:12:320:12:37

-You're bowling

-with the Chrysanthemums...

0:12:390:12:42

-..and batting with the Dahlias.

0:12:420:12:45

-Yes, the fall back.

0:12:450:12:46

-John not only bats and bowls

-with two flowers in competition...

0:12:520:12:57

-..he's won the Cardiff in Bloom

-competition more than once...

0:13:000:13:04

-..before the competition ended

-in 2014.

0:13:040:13:07

-About 10 years ago,

-I received a note...

0:13:100:13:13

-..inviting me to enter

-Cardiff in Bloom.

0:13:130:13:16

-"Oh, right, I might as well."

0:13:170:13:19

-Novice, the first year.

0:13:190:13:22

-I won first prize.

0:13:240:13:25

-Once you win,

-there are standards to maintain.

0:13:260:13:31

-You search for something new

-each year.

0:13:310:13:36

-Today, the garden gives pleasure

-to passers-by...

0:13:410:13:44

-..and to friends who call by.

0:13:450:13:47

-It gives John the chance

-to share his knowledge.

0:13:470:13:50

-What about the future?

0:13:510:13:53

-Are there any additional plans

-about how to change the garden?

0:13:530:13:58

-Top secret!

0:13:590:14:01

-Is my wife present?

0:14:020:14:04

-I've promised to grow

-less variety...

0:14:060:14:12

-..and do less of the detailed work.

0:14:120:14:14

-You'll have more time

-to dedicate to other things.

0:14:160:14:20

-Precisely.

0:14:200:14:22

-Can I have that on paper?

-I'll pass it on to your wife.

0:14:220:14:26

-Somehow,

-I don't think John will do less.

0:14:290:14:33

-It is said that the garden

-is a reflection of the soul.

0:14:340:14:37

-If so, John has too colourful a soul

-to put his feet up.

0:14:370:14:41

-Not everyone would be brave enough

-to design a garden...

0:15:110:15:14

-..around this rock behind me.

0:15:140:15:16

-That's precisely what the owner

-of Penmaen, Pwllheli, has done.

0:15:160:15:20

-She's created an unique

-and unexpected garden.

0:15:210:15:24

-When Owena Jones

-and her family moved to Penmaen...

0:15:240:15:27

-..their garden

-was desolate, rocky land.

0:15:280:15:30

-Over the decades, Owena's created

-a home with a miraculous garden...

0:15:310:15:36

-..on difficult terrain.

0:15:360:15:38

-The garden has been a focal point

-for the family.

0:15:380:15:41

-Daughter Karen has now assumed

-the duty of maintaining the garden.

0:15:420:15:46

-There were so many trees

-and Rhododendrons.

0:15:460:15:49

-There was so much clearing work,

-we couldn't see the rock.

0:15:490:15:53

-It was covered. If it's OK for me

-to say, you were a busy woman.

0:15:540:15:57

-After completing work on the house,

-you started working on the garden.

0:15:580:16:02

-It's been hard work

-but work you've enjoyed doing...

0:16:030:16:06

-..with the intention of leaving

-a return on the investment.

0:16:070:16:11

-It's been important

-for you to improve...

0:16:110:16:14

-..and move things forward.

0:16:140:16:17

-We had the idea

-of writing everything down...

0:16:170:16:21

-..and following the plan

-to the letter.

0:16:210:16:23

-We eventually came

-to an understanding.

0:16:240:16:27

-You came to understand nature

-and nature came to understand you.

0:16:280:16:32

-It all fitted into place.

0:16:330:16:34

-There are a lot of roses here.

-You like roses.

0:16:340:16:38

-I've been fond of roses

-for many years.

0:16:390:16:42

-I still like them.

0:16:420:16:44

-With this kind of landscape, it was

-impossible to ignore the rock.

0:16:530:16:57

-It had to be included in the plan.

0:16:570:16:59

-The aim was to plant the heather

-and the flowers you can see...

0:17:000:17:03

-..to allow them

-to grow into each other...

0:17:040:17:06

-..to keep weeding to a minimum

-and make it work with the landscape.

0:17:070:17:12

-As the spring heather goes,

-summer heather blooms.

0:17:120:17:17

-The rock is colourful all the time.

0:17:170:17:20

-This is the place to be -

-what a view.

0:17:200:17:23

-Wow.

0:17:230:17:26

-On a lovely evening,

-watching the sunset...

0:17:260:17:29

-..over the mountains

-of Boduan and Nefyn...

0:17:300:17:33

-..the Lleyn Peninsula

-is at its best.

0:17:340:17:37

-How fortunate are we!

0:17:370:17:40

-You can check the traffic

-to Pwllheli from here.

0:17:400:17:43

-Tell me about the tower.

0:17:470:17:49

-The sea level used to reach

-the bottom of the tower.

0:17:490:17:53

-There are stories of boats sailing

-up when the family imported wood.

0:17:530:17:59

-When the boats came in,

-a cannon would be fired here...

0:18:000:18:03

-..to alert workers in Pwllheli

-to come and unload the cargo.

0:18:040:18:08

-I'm not entirely sure

-whether or not it's a true story.

0:18:090:18:12

-You discovered a cannon here.

0:18:120:18:15

-As it happened, Mam was weeding

-and extending the garden.

0:18:150:18:20

-She found the cannon

-in the undergrowth.

0:18:200:18:23

-We still have it

-and it's been restored.

0:18:240:18:28

-Ever felt like firing it at someone?

0:18:280:18:30

-More than once!

0:18:300:18:32

-Looking after a garden of this size

-is too much for Owena and Karen.

0:18:510:18:56

-They employ the expertise

-of James Williamson to help them.

0:18:560:19:00

-He's performed miracles

-with the maintenance...

0:19:000:19:03

-..and restoration work.

0:19:040:19:06

-James?

0:19:060:19:07

-I've been here for six months

-maintaining the garden.

0:19:090:19:13

-Weeding,

-removing the unwanted trees...

0:19:130:19:16

-..storing the trees ready

-to replant them in the future.

0:19:170:19:21

-There's a wide variety of plants

-and colours.

0:19:210:19:25

-Owena has been very busy making it

-colourful with different plants...

0:19:250:19:31

-..growing here.

0:19:320:19:34

-We've introduced more wild flowers

-and long grasses...

0:19:340:19:38

-..to save time and money.

0:19:380:19:42

-It also returns the rock

-to the natural world...

0:19:420:19:46

-..for bees and insects.

0:19:460:19:48

-What do you think of Owena's vision?

0:19:480:19:51

-It's a bit far-fetched!

-It's incredible what she's created.

0:19:510:19:55

-I don't think she was thinking of me

-when she planted them.

0:19:550:19:59

-Fair play, her vision is great.

0:19:590:20:02

-It's a vast garden.

0:20:020:20:04

-This one and the one at the top,

-they're different types of gardens.

0:20:040:20:10

-Every part of it is different.

0:20:110:20:13

-You need different ways

-to manage the land...

0:20:130:20:17

-..and different gardening methods.

0:20:170:20:19

-I'll let you get on with it.

0:20:200:20:22

-I'll let you get on with it.

-

-Thanks!

0:20:220:20:23

-Off you go!

0:20:230:20:25

-You've missed one.

0:20:280:20:29

-You've missed one.

-

-Thanks for that.

0:20:290:20:31

-Penmaen is a family estate.

0:20:390:20:41

-Karen, her son - Morgan,

-and Solomon the dog...

0:20:410:20:44

-..live in a barn on the estate.

0:20:440:20:46

-They have a very different garden.

0:20:460:20:49

-We live in a house

-which has a lot of glass in it...

0:20:490:20:55

-..so it made sense to design

-a garden that worked with the house.

0:20:550:20:59

-We've tried to be different

-to Mam's garden.

0:21:000:21:03

-It's a garden for the future

-with unique plants...

0:21:030:21:07

-..almost dangerous in some ways.

0:21:070:21:10

-If you look around you, you'll see

-different shades of green.

0:21:100:21:15

-They almost look like fruit flies

-that could catch and eat you.

0:21:150:21:20

-That was the idea.

0:21:210:21:22

-It was challenging because

-there was no soil here at all.

0:21:230:21:28

-Over 200 tonnes of earth

-have been moved here...

0:21:290:21:35

-..to give the plants

-something to grow in.

0:21:350:21:38

-We couldn't plant everything here -

-we worked with what we had.

0:21:380:21:43

-Is the garden an important part

-of your life?

0:21:430:21:46

-It has been an important part

-of my life.

0:21:460:21:50

-Most of the plants

-have grown with me.

0:21:500:21:53

-As I've grown up,

-the plants have grown up with me.

0:21:530:21:56

-It's a great place to run around,

-I can run free.

0:21:570:22:00

-Which part do you like the best?

0:22:000:22:02

-Which part do you like the best?

-

-I like the woods.

0:22:020:22:03

-That's where my swings and dens

-are located.

0:22:040:22:07

-That's my favourite part.

0:22:070:22:09

-We often light a fire here

-late at night...

0:22:090:22:13

-..and we sleep outside

-under the stars.

0:22:140:22:17

-Morgan has a tree house.

0:22:170:22:19

-On the first night he climbed up...

0:22:190:22:22

-..we had a cosy night

-sleeping in the trees...

0:22:220:22:26

-..listening to the leaves

-rustling in the wind.

0:22:260:22:30

-Would you like to add

-something to the garden?

0:22:300:22:33

-Well, I'd like to add a zip wire.

0:22:330:22:37

-From my bedroom to the woods.

0:22:370:22:41

-To the school?

0:22:410:22:42

-To the school?

-

-No, the woods!

0:22:420:22:44

-I'd get to school early!

0:22:450:22:47

-Mam has certainly been

-an inspiration to me.

0:23:070:23:10

-I've personally learnt

-through osmosis...

0:23:100:23:14

-..how to be a gardener and how

-to understand and respect plants.

0:23:140:23:19

-I've experimented

-and tried things...

0:23:190:23:24

-..to see how they work

-before moving on.

0:23:240:23:28

-I enjoy sitting here in the evening.

0:23:280:23:32

-It's a wonderful time for us all.

0:23:320:23:35

-It gives us great pleasure.

0:23:350:23:37

-Everyone experiences that pleasure

-and I enjoy seeing that.

0:23:370:23:42

-That's the impression I have too.

0:23:420:23:45

-Everyone who lives and works here...

0:23:450:23:47

-..is glad to be part

-of Penmaen's history.
