New gardening programmes

Welcome back to the Allotment programme on BBC2 - took all of the last series to get my head round the format but I quite enjoyed it.  This year's is a bit less confusing as the plots are tended by one person instead of the confusing pairs!  I was horrified by the rats in one persons plot, with no explanation why or how to get rid of them.

The other programme on Sky "Show Your Garden" is apparently based on the format of Come Dine with me, but I have never seen that so it was lost to me.  Each week 3 gardens are shown and voted on by the other couples. It was quite interesting to see round ordinary gardens. We do enjoy seeing gardens in the Yellow Book in the summer too!

Wont be long till Gardeners World is back, I like Beechgrove too even if it is based in the far and frozen north.

  2. There's another new one later tonight! I don't think any of them are instructional these days. We reckon on Beechgrove's older blokes being the best to teach you anything.
