Alice was good when she knew her stuff - not forest gardening then - but Toby was truly dreadful - bad ideas, shoddy work, incomplete projects, no follow up and he was disrespectful of both plants and tools.
Monty is a bit boring and definitely out of touch with people with small plots and/or little experience and/or limited time and resources but he's a practical gardener and amiable.
I get much more pleasure and info from Beechgrove which has the added bonus of Chris Beardshaw and lots of practical info and comparisons of methods and products.
Carol Klein is good but needs to learn the art of presenting in a normal, conversational tone of voice.
The main problem with GW is the production team. I get the distinct impression tehy are not gardeners and do'nt find plants or gardening particularly interesting and that is reflected in the choice of topics and the camera angles and focus.
