Carol Klein TV programme

Did anyone see the Gardening with Carol Klein ( I think that's what it is called) programme in one of the Channel 5s yesterday?
It was really informative. A proper how to gardening programme. Minimal 4 legged friends and a smart new hairdo.
In London. Keen but lazy.

    Is it a new series? I've seen the last series. No TV last night. We went to Henry V screened from the National Theatre, disappointing, too modern and messed about with.

    I don't know. I didn't see the last one so it's new to me anyway.😊

    I saw bits of it and generally liked it.  Both her cat and dog did make appearances and I was uncomfortable with thoughts of what the cat might do once she moved away from the raised bed she was preparing.

    Oh good! I'm glad we have Now TV with Catch up.

    I watched series 1 in the run-up to this and she's repeating a lot of the content.

    I still enjoyed it though.....

    It's spring so many of the jobs are the same each year but she does give clear explanations so that's OK.

    Oh I get that.  I guess it's the same with GW and Monty's bl**dy tomatoes and pumpkins :D

    At least Monty seems to have stopped having lengthy segments each Spring and Autumn explaining what you should do with your Banana plants, and annual detailed explanations of pruning grapes!
  • I've recently discovered the Carol Klein prog (have just watched all the old episodes after seeing a recommendation on this forum and started the new series this evening). I absolutely love it. As B3 said, a proper how-to programme, but also lots of planting ideas and useful tips. None of the bits I always forward on GW because I find them boring (viewers gardens etc or sometimes anything except Monty!)
