Gardener's World T.V.

Am I the only viewer who finds this programme becoming increasingly stale? This year the only real interest has been the viewers videos where the 'presenters' and their gardens run rings round the professionals in terms of enthusiasm and inventiveness. Come on Monty, Adam, et al, lets have something other than yet another demonstration on how to take a cutting or water a seed tray.

    I rarely, if ever, watch it now, but knowing how to sow seed and take cuttings etc is something every new gardener needs help with, so it's bit unfair to say that it shouldn't be on a gardening programme. It's a vital learning process  :)

    I would suggest the OP may like to join the original discussion just so it's  all kept in one place.  Makes it easier for reference.

    I agree @Fairygirl .... loads of folk have taken up gardening for the first time during the pandemic ... not to cover the basics would be plain daft.

    For various reasons I have not often seen the programme much this year and I understand the viewers’ videos are now better - though it would be hard for them to be worse than some of them. My attitude to the clips of viewers’ gardens is like my attitude towards poems in the letters page of the local paper - perverse enjoyment.
