There has been a lot of comment on the cost of these gardens, rightly so, and the programme makers seem to be promoting the opposite philosophy of the rest of us who garden on a budget, often shoestring in size. I blame the RHS and its Chelsea gardens. How long before we get the first million pound garden, being drooled over by TV pundits and celebrities.
The rest of us rely on bargains from the GC, propagating our own plants. swopping plants with friends and neighbours, pinching cuttings, our own labour and efforts etc, etc. That's the real world of gardening. How about a gardening programme solely focused on gardening for free, or as near as dammit. That would be really useful.
