Jo47 - because some parents these days want the rest of the world to do b****y everything for them.....
Not everyone has endless time, money or energy to spend in a garden. It doesn't mean they shouldn't have one to enjoy. Most of us don't have Roman Abramovich's bank balance either so you could argue that it's pointless watching Chelsea, Hampton Court etc to get ideas for a garden. It's a harmless half hour show and if it encourages a few people to get outside and enjoy the space they have, with limited funds to get going, I don't think that's too bad an idea.
NGCards is right - No one's forced at gunpoint to watch, so use the off switch if you don't care for it. I use it every time I see Carol Klein.
And we all had to start somewhere.
