I look forward to Chelsea every year and would love to see a broader range of gardens - not just the big show gardens. I love to listen to garden designers like Clive West share their expertise on the designs. Also love to listen to Carol Klein share her knowledge of plants- her passion shines through.
Only interested in the gardens of celebrities if they are genuinely passionate gardeners. Mary Berry and the actor out of 'Only fools and horses' clearly love their gardening and I enjoyed seeing their gardens. A year or so ago they showed the garden of the Radio presenter Sandy Toksvig. If she had any knowledge or passion for gardening she kept it remarkably well hidden. Would love to see the gardens of the designers themselves - quickly discover if they are simply designers or real gardeners with the skill of also being garden designers.
I suppose the challenge for the producer is that they need to have a certain amount of content filmed in advance if they are going to have enough coverage for two programmes a day.
