Original Description

The Rich and Poor Alike Have Flowers
'This film shows the inborn love of Englishmen for a garden, whether it is Hampton Court, a cottage garden or the tiny strip in front of a suburban house. Whatever the limitations of his garden, the gardener accepts them as a challenge to his skill.'
(Films of Britain - British Council Film Department Catalogue - 1942-43)
