After Geoff Hamilton it gradually deteriorated to the extent that in the last couple of years I often haven't bothered to switch it on, and if I did would switch off halfway through, there was so little of interest. Plus I found the presenters "breathless enthusiasm" combined with lack of gardening skill truly irritating (apart, that is from Alys Fowler Sarah Raven and Rachel de Thame).
Trying the last 2 weeks episodes I must say I am intially impressed with the relaxed presenting style coupled with interesting gardening tips from the new presenter, and it is good to see Alys taking a larger part. I will be following the series with renewed interest.
I have spoken to others about this, and there is unanimous agreement that things seem to have taken a turn for the better.
