Gardeners World - not back for 4 weeks!

Posted: 28/06/2012 at 12:36

I love gardening and also love to watch any programn on gardening.  To learn that both Gardeners World and Beechgrove are shelved once again for any reason is taking things a bit beyond the pale.  I agree we could have a dedicated channel for us fanatics.  The goverment and environmentalists are always on about how we should use our gardens to help save the planet but where is the practical advice and knowledge to come from its ok to say read a book on it but there is nothing to compare with watching how its done.  I also feel too much time is spent on showing off large gardens with no relation to what we should be doing on our small plots.  Surely this could be shown on a dedicated programn for information on gardens to visit.  I want more practical information and I'm sure new gardeners would appreciate this.  I loved Tobys small gardens series when he did Gardeners World but could have done with more detailed info on planting and upkeep.  I have gardened for 35 years so not a novice but I am still learning. Sorry to have witterred on just hope someone at any channel is listening.
