I have to agree with you Lesley. It was everything I disliked about Scottish gardens and Scottish gardening in general - Heather, Rhodies and twee, outdated bedding.
Where it scores now though, is the simple clear advice from experienced people, as you say. Even when they discuss plants I'm not particularly interested in, it's presented in such a gentle and well informed way that it's a pleasure to watch. The comparison trials are excellent for anyone trying to decide what to plant - whether flower, fruit or veg.
