I was wondering the same. I was at the show on Wednesday(12/6/13), as I have done for many years, and was surprised that there were no camera crews around and no signs of Monty, Rachel, Carol or Joe. Why would the Gardeners world team not be at the show for filming and interacting with the with those who watch them week in week out?? My surprise started when last week he said he would be back at Longmeadows, as I had expected to hear some news about the show. What's going on BBC?
The show did not have the usual buzz about it this year and there was definitely less plants people at the show. This is the first year that I have not bought any plants for myself. Overall a disappointment. Considering not going next year.
