As much as I would love to see a more instructional type format I feel in these days of instant information access we will not see the TV channels producing such programmes.
I grew up learning from my dad and later other allotmenteers, I still learn new things every year from a number of sources of which lately this has been one.
My partners love of flowers has meant she has sparked my interest in floral gardening and slowly I am learning my way here.
I have to say I enjoy GW, I cannot add to whether Monty is a "fraud" or not as I dont know him or any of the presenters personally. The format appeals to a broad church and though not perfect it is a must watch in our household.
My ideal team would have been, Geoff Hamilton, Peter Seabrook, Pippa Greenwood and Anne Swithinbank.
