For goodness sake! Hosta and Wintersong - does it matter what the sexual orientation of the male ( or female ) contestants might or might not be?
The question is rather 'Do they know anything about gardening and are they capable of fulfilling the brief given to them within the parameters ( and perimeters! ) of the programme?'
I agree with a number of folk on here who have spotted similarities to Bake-offs, Cook-offs, Sewing-Bee-offs (!!) Home-Design-offs......horribly formulaic even though it passes an hour on an evening.
They start with a clean, weed-free patch of pre-prepared soil, have a team of 'builders' and construction workers to do the graft for them whilst they sup tea and lean on their spades looking angst-ridden and tearful, wondering how best to spend their enormous budget when they get to the well-stocked garden centre and are then given 4 days to come up with something 'better' than their 'neighbours'.
'Theatre', yep, I can agree with that. Pure Pantomime.
Any guesses from the forum on who the winner will be? Seems to me it's a foregone conclusion...
