Rob L - most of us on here would agree with you but it seems the powers that Beeb are slow to cotton on to the importance of gardens and gardening for personal, community and environmental well being. It surely can't be any more expensive to produce than wall to wall antiquing and cookery programmes in diverse formats.
As you say, it is a huge subject with endless possibilities for informative and entertaining programmes.
I think we don't get follow-ups of Monty's assorted projects because there isn't a plan for the season. It all seems to be very much "what shall we do today?" so there's no continuity.
Very pleased GW has been extended to one hour and introduced new features and ideas but still say "Thank heavens for Beechgrove!" which does trials and projects on plants/products/methods and reports back.
