I'm a total novice and really appreciated the piece on the largely ignored garden, and starting from scratch, as that's what I'm doing myself, so it gives me a chance to learn a little, and not to be overwhelmed by information, and then I can be in awe of the more mature gardens they show from more experienced gardeners, I loved the wildflower, and 'calendar' style garden this week! Beautiful!
I can see why experienced gardeners find it a little patronising, but I don't think there's reason to spoil it for new people like me, I find it rather belittling in all honesty especially to mock the beginners piece. I'm 21 and have a lifetime to learn, and shows like GW make it all the more accessible for me.
If 30 seconds of showing a man and dog's friend upsets you so much, maybe you could stop watching it, and while you're at it, assess your priorities.
