Why does everyone have to dislike the presenters? Surely its the content of the programme we are all inerested in!  Although i have to say Geff Hamillton was by far the best! no more name calling please

I agree with Gary why only one gardening programme? not even any repeats on sky at the moment. But A T has new programme comming on June 26th Love your garden transforming  neglected gardens, could be interesting.

HI David i love sweet peas and usually grow them every year with success.however last year i sowed 2 lots and they both got eaten by pigeons i think. This year i sowed in greenhouse a bit late, planted out about 3 weeks ago so still quite small, i put up a wig wam of canes and put plastic bottles with top and bottom cut off over each cane to plant sweet peas into to protect from the dreaded pigeons i also draped netting round. so no pigeon dammage however half of plants are growing well but half seem to be yellowing and not growing. Any idea what i did wrong?

Hi Caron why not see if you can borrow a goat for a while it will do all the work for you! ha ha! But seriously you need to think how you want your garden to look when its cleared. If you dont have much time you need it to be low maininence.
