Dove - sounds as if the march went well today

Archiepem - you have been busy

WW - still dry here but cold out I would say

Have peeps got to do a lot in the garden or are the bits getting ticked off your lists?

New TV programme

Hi all,

Just a quick note to say there is a new gardening TV series starting on Monday 9 December, 7pm on BBC2, called the Great British Garden Revival. It runs for a week in December (Monday-Friday) and then returns for a week in January (Monday-Friday, 6-10 January, 7pm, BBC2). 

It features Monty Don, Joe Swift, Carol Klein, Rachel de Thame, James Wong, Chris Beardshaw, Toby Buckland, Charlie Dimmock, Sarah Raven, Tom Hart Dyke, Christine Walkden, Alys Fowler, Diarmuid Gavin and Matt James. Each episode is themed around two different styles or aspects of gardening and there's footage from some beautiful gardens around the country, many of which are open to the public.  

In the first episode, Monty is celebrating wildflowers from Pensthorpe Nature Reserve and Joe Swift is sharing his tips for front gardens from an award-winning street in Tyne and Wear.

There's also a new TV series called Grow, Make, Eat, about allotment growing, which is currently scheduled to start early next year.

Hopefully these will help fill the gap until Gardeners' World and The Beechgrove Garden return.

Hello forkers

has been a sunny day but I feel little rough so stayed inside today and have been watching more rick van man on his allotment on youtube

Hello KEF I know Monty started the seed sorting thing off, he should be doing mine maybe when they are all on a break from the tv shows they could come help me out with the seeds and garden sorting

I would say add lots of compost mix it all it nicely

I like watching the video on the link below, helpful to watch some of his other videos

This youtube videos he uses rockdust to help improve the soil and he uses farmyard muck so I am sure if you add lots of muck it will help

Nice cake

Right all I am back now - had to go sort seeds out after KEF saying about that, flowers done now sorted them by colour then will just pick a colour to grow, seeds that need sowing first at front of each colour - they all just fitted into the candyfloss tub - some seed packs out of date but sure will grow well as been kept ok

Still veg seeds to go but will take too long to sort out so many of them, will leave that for another day

Think I will get a book to write down seeds I have got to help me as well KEF  

HELLO FORKERS!
