They are all professional gardeners who are use dto teh outdoors and have the clotehs and tools to cope. I noticed that neither the garden owner nor the presenter in Problem Corner was rugged up to the neck so they're clearly made of sterner stuff up in Scotland. Most of the UK has had that weather too and far layter than is usual so all teh advice about keeping off the soil and warming up beds and protecting plants is relevant UK wide except maybe in Cornwall.
The Beechgrove garden was set up decades ago as a permanent home for Scottish gardening TV and employs staff as well as having the presenting team come in and do features for the programme. If Greenacres had been set up with as much forethought and integrity it might well have survived as a permanent home for GW but it was doomed from the start by bad planning, bad implementation and IMHO, bad presenting and filming and editing.
