Can I also reiterate that whilst Carol Klein is a marvellous co-presenter , Joe Swift is still too lightweight,self-obsessed,and so-obviously not a practiced or dedicated gardener that he should be removed at the soonest instance.
Once again , I'd like to suggest that we see the re-introduction of Rachel De Thame,Pippa Greenwood,Ann Swithinbank,Christine Walkden,and not forgetting Chris Beardshaw or the aforementioned Cleve West as Guest/Co-Presenters . But ,most definitely, JOE MUST GO ! !(I suspect his mother-inlaw ,wife and children , apart from visitors and other friendly gardeners did the allotment upkeep ,more than he ,in any case,as he was away preparing for and cack-handedly presenting the Various RHS Flower Shows on TV ...)
I am a great admirer of Carol and would have been delighted to see her lead the programme. She has infectious enthusiasm and friendliness along with the professionalism to back it all up. Whether in her own garden or at Berryfields her love for what she does makes you feel as if she is having as much of a personal conversation with you as she does with the family she has been helping on the programme. I would like to assume she isn't heading it because she's far too busy!
I thought with Tony guest presenting on Gardeners' World Live and then on the programme he was being shown as a possible contender. I didn't like the woodland patch but that was something for one programme and I am willing to see how he progresses with his ideas for long term projects over the coming months and wish him luck.
