Feels like spring is really hear now and the temperature is rising happy days!

OH thank god for that...Feel like I've been waiting a decade for the new season of GW to start. My only wish now is that they would bring it back as an hour long program like it used to be . The snippets are too short in these half hour programs, and it displeases me when Monty says, "and here's some of the jobs you can get on with in the garden this week" as I know the end is nigh!

Hear! Hear!  I heartily agree!  But if it's going to be on for an hour then it needs to start at 8pm - some gardeners need their beauty sleep

That's how it used to be from 8pm - 9pm.

Or.. you could watch it on the iPlayer.    Fabulous thing that.

I think they always start off with half hour episodes, then part way through the series they change to one hour episodes.

I always record it anyway, but I like to watch it between 8 and 9 on a Friday - I'm a creature of habit

Wonderful  I have been watching all the repeat gardening progs on any channel. I agree half hour just not long enough. good it shows three days in a row , shall watch it in triplicate in case I missed a bit

I've been an avid watcher of Gardeners world for the last 20 odd years my Friday night ritual bottle of red and chocolate and settle down to watch GW sad I know. In the last ten years I know of GW hasn't gone from half hour to hour half way through the season unless they've televised some Garden exhibition like, The Chelsea Flower Show. I would like to add that I found the series with Christine Walkden 'Garden's from above' and 'The big Garden Revival' with most of the GW crew, (hope I got those titles right) much more informative and more in the format of how GW used to be. I don't know if most people would agree but In half an hour you can't delve into the pro's and con's of growing and creating a garden, along with a history of how it was done before and more modern methods used today which is what I believe most new armature gardeners would like to see I'm sure?
