National Garden Scheme

I saw the following online and thought that some of you might be interested?

We’re absolutely delighted that many of our gardens are going to be the subject of a new television programme called All Gardens Great & Small, with Miranda Hart and her mother Dee Hart Dyke. The programme, which starts on Monday (August 21st) on More4, will follow past National Garden Scheme volunteer Dee as she travels the UK visiting gardens that open for us!



  • Might be worth watching, but sadly there are only three episodes.

    Sounds my sort of programme, thank you.
    I wish they would do another series of that programme showing gardens being picked for the NGS.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    Sounds like it could be interesting.  Sadly it has Miranda Hart in it!  I know many people think she's great, but I really can't stand her.

    KT 53 - mute the sound and enjoy the gardens.

    I'm with you KT 53  .... I find her very irritating.

    Good idea Joyce image

    Does anyone know if Dee Hart-Dyke is related to Tom Hart-Dyke , the plant hunter?

  • chickychicky Posts: 10,395

    yes - Tom Hart-Dyke is Miranda Hart's cousin I guess that makes her his Auntie Deeimage

    No idea Hosta but she does have a "pedigree" background.
