Looking for the next great binge-worthy series? Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 12 because that's when Discovery+'s latest show, Clipped, debuts, and it promises to be an idyllic escape for garden enthusiasts and aesthetes alike. The show stars Martha Stewart, acclaimed landscape designer Fernando Wong (you may recognize him from the 2021 Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach), and lifestyle expert Chris Lambton as the judges for what Wong says is like The Great British Baking Show but for horticulture designers vying for a $50,000 prize.

The six-part series features 90-minute episodes with various challenges to highlight the skills of the seven-event designers, artists, and botanical designers competing for the spot as top topiarist, all from a charming setting in Lindenhurst, New York.

"My favorite part of being part of this show was the ability to see artists perform in mediums I use all the time, like topiaries," says Wong. "I loved seeing all the possibilities of how they could be used and it was a fun learning experience to see how people use certain techniques to create something beautiful."

Wong says this show comes at a perfect time as people have been flocking to nature and their own outdoor spaces, and he hopes the series inspires them to create new things with accessible materials and resources as a form of art. He also hopes Clipped brings greater awareness of the importance of outdoor spaces as a means to inspire and beautify any location.

"These expressions of art have been around us for many years with different venues in public installations, like Disney World," says Wong. "To have the big light of television focusing on what people have been doing for many years will create awareness as communities seek to improve homes, schools, neighborhoods with the power of nature. It's great for our country to understand and make a big impact in the communities around us with natural beauty."

Discovery+ subscribers can tune in for the first episode of Clipped on May 12. New episodes of the six-part series will be released on the streaming service every Wednesday through the finale on June 16.
