Bumping this thread back up to the top because I'd like to know as well. Last year my pumpkin plants vrew strongly but each time a pumpkin would appear a few days later it fell off.

Was last year just a bad year? :/

I do enjoy when they show a "normal person" who has a passion for gardening like the chap the other week with his sweet peas and ladies tights (I didn't even know there were so many different colours!) But it would also be interesting to follow a new person, or maybe a student in a horticulture college student starting with their blank canvas and showing the highs and lows that those of us without a huge budget / camera crew to be bullied into moving mud / perfect soil conditions making the SAME MISTAKES WE DO!!

Edd - we live 100 miles away from our family so while we'll be travelling many miles the horse muck itself only has to move a few!! (My Godmother who lives next door to my parents has ponies).

I have a local animal sanctuary in the village I live in that re-homes horses. I hope to nip in and see if they'll let me bag a truck load for a donation but unfortunately the vegetable plot is along way off needing anything other than hard graft and a big shovel for a while.
