If you want sound, practical advice presented in an efficient and friendly manner and with a good factsheet available you should watch Beechgrove which is a long standing programme from Scotland now available nationwide on BBC2 on Sunday mornings. It packs in an amazing amount of info without seeming hurried and they do useful trials of growing methods and plants.
If you want a quiet half hour to sit with a glass of wine and just relax without being challenged then GW fits the bill. Monty's is a knowledgeable gardener but his garden and his weekly projects have little relevance to small gardens and new gardeners. The best bits now are the external visits to specialist growers, other gardens and Carol's new gardeners. NIgel is a nice dog but he's an unnecessary distraction in a programme which already has far too lottle content from the main presenter.
