Hi all,

Probably has been done before...but how about we start a list of favourite gardeners that post on YouTube? 

My particular favourite is Garden Answer presented by Laura LeBoutillier whose down to earth presenting and advice I've found very useful. And she certainly comes up with some interesting combinations of planting...and a totally swoonworthy garden that any Londoner can only dream of! But nevertheless, a great watch and inspiration, the opposite of stuffy. Particularly great to see her garden evolve in the last two years...have binge watched so many episodes it's ridiculous!

    Ha - I've watched a lot of gardening videos on YT, but I don't tend to follow individuals. I did watch a lot by the same people for my RHS certificate (eg GrowVeg for the fruit & veg module, The Rusted Garden for plant nutrition) but I don't think that's quite what you're after.

    I watch youtube a lot, as I don't watch television... I had a quick look at your link...  I prefer to watch history series on there more than gardening... example.. I've just watched old film from 1901 of factory workers in the north of England.. they were fascinated with the camera being on them, rather like them watching me, watching them... just they wouldn't have known that....
    ..some of the older ones would have been born around 1840 or so, and so many of the young boys would have gone on to be killed in WW1 I suppose...

    Anyway that's the sort of thing I like to watch...  it's a break from gardening interests..

    I don't expect anyone to waste their time on this link, but this is one of my favourite drama films of all time on youtube, as it's very difficult to obtain it on dvd - very expensive for some reason...  it's called 'Pack Of Lies' and stars Alan Bates and Ellen Burstyn... it tells the story of events surrounding the Portland Spy Ring from 1960...

    It's interesting also I think as the teenage girl in the film, in real life, was a former gardeners world presenter called Gay Search... who presented with Geoff Hamilton back in the day... it was her parents house that MI5 used to spy from an upstairs window..

    ..oh, and Joe Swift's late father the actor Clive Swift, also has a role...

    Thanks for sharing @LG_ and @Marlorena funny the various uses of YouTube aren't they? I'm going through a garden inspiration phase...so like watching others put together plants and getting ideas for similar areas in mine. Having only gardened up to now in pots and raised beds it's great to feel much more free to pick favourites and have them grow in the ground.
