I miss GH and his down to earth style on GW too and the joy of his series shown in on Ornamental Kitchen Gardens and Paradise Gardens was just amazing. I thought AT's How to be a Gardener series was inspirational and had something for everyone from beginners to experienced amateurs.
I still Watch GW when it's on but with Monty at the helm I find it very rarely makes me itch to get out in the garden and tackle jobs or start a new project or try a new plant. It's all too Monty-centric and not sufficiently tailored to Mr or Mrs average gardener and especially not for complete beginners who have to contend with limited knowledge and/or limited space/time/budgets. He just seems tohave no clue as to how most people live and garden.
I just hope someone at the Beeb will commission a decent series on how, what and when to sow, plant, harvest, maintain, design, replant, propagate, prune, compost, recycle and all the other things gardeners love to do but also have to do to make an attractive garden and keep it looking good without a bottomless purse.
