I too have missed Nigel and was sad to hear that he may be poorly.  Get well soon Nigel.  My dog, Angus, watches GW with me and when Nigel appears he runs to the TV and barks.  He also loves the chickens and can hear the birds singing in the background. 

Love to Nigel and hope to see him on TV again soon, he is the star of the show.

My husband never refers to "Gardeners' World" now, it's always "The Nigel Show."

We do hope that he is alright, he's a real scene-stealer! 

Unusual name for a dog, though.......

Yes we love Nigel too, our late muched loved cat was called Ralph, and my daughters do is Henry.

Hope Nigel is back soon - perhaps MD will tell us this week what has been the trouble, hope it's not bad news.

Less dog - more gardening!!

I don't think that Nigel detracts from the gardening Lowenna, I think that he rather adds to the general cosy feel of the programme. Just wish we had more than half an hour weekly, surely an hour a week wouldn't be too much to ask for?

This is a recurring topic that has been discussed here and elsewhere at some length-the chances of getting longer/more gardening programmes on tv or radio are close to slim-and I know there are too many antique, home/house, cookery programmes but gardening for some reason is bottom of the list

No idea why- but it is a fact of life

 

I agree sotongeoff, it does seem to be a fact of life but that doesn't mean we can't continue to have a moan about it! You never know, maybe someone in the "know" will have a rethink and actually extend our one and only gardening programme.

There is also the wonderful Beechgrove Garden which can be found on the iplayer though the series is just finishing for this year.

I've been following the Nigel threads, I do genuinely have to ask what is the good news?

Last time we saw Nigel he was playing with the apples in the orchard maybe he ate too many perhaps he has more sense than to hang about in the rain or they dont pay him wet weather money.

I'm so glad Nigel was back on the screen and do hope his back injury improves.   He adds such a gentleness to the programme.   His eyes looked a little unwell - poor lad.   Keep warm Nigel and tell your dad to look after you.

Yes, gardening and garden centres are such a massive industry and it's a great hobby for many of the population and yet, we are given 30 mins per week and half of that is Carol walking round somewhere and not much information.  I used to love watching Geoff Hamilton -  his genuine love and enthusiasm was infectious.   The BBC must have a young newby taken over the Dept????

Keep warm Nigel.

 

Lovely adorable pic.   Please could you send him to me ????   Lol.

Lovely to see Nigel returned to health! Very, very depressed to hear that tonights programme was the last one of the year!!!!!! Come on BBC - it's just not good enough! What am I to do on Friday night without my GW fix? Gardening and horticulture is a massive subject, and deserves to have much more attention.
