Can the BBC make the download availability faster, it seems to be only available well over a week after showing.

It's been a week since last week's programme was shown so why can we not download it still. Surely by the following Friday, the previous programme should be available. You can't get a connection everywhere you go. Hurry up....

Hungry Deer 2

grow climbing plants they can't reach, I find when I pruned roses too low they got eaten, but left to grown higher, the young deer can't reach them. So stick to climbing plants/roses honeysuckle up supports. Alliums might be safer, garlic plants etc? They eat my sedums, and roses and nip all the top of the geraniums in one year, but the snow must have killed some, fewer next year. Maybe have tulips in pots near the front door/back door, they are wary of getting too close. But I did notice some will come up at 6am to within 3 foot of the door.....!

rather too many programmes concentrate on the problem of not having enough space. But there are a lot of gardens which have the opposite problem, rather large gardens, in my case half an acre to be managed. I love gardening, but the woodland at the end is hard work, trees fall and the mess takes ages to clear if you can find the strength when you're on you're own.

Can Monty do a programme about managing larger gardens where you don't have much extra help or any staff, and no side access for machinery to make life simple? I'm clearing overgrown hedging from fallen trees, then having them cut up for firewood and making log shacks of sorts and urgently need a solution to kill as much bramble which is strangling everything and grows back in a year. And how can one kill bramble growing over a pile of flints?
