New gardening programme.

Can't find the right thread, but there is a new series The Art of the Garden, on Tuesdays, 7-8pm., on Sky Arts.

It started last week, and I have just watched the first part, it is on Dan Pearson, a designer I love, and I thought it was brilliant.

    Oh bother, we don't have Sky Arts.

    Does it have endless soppy shots of dozing dogs? If not, it's no good for me.

    Watched it last night...more about the design process and the designers themselves than about actual gardening like we are used to on GW...and I don't think there was a dog in sight.

    Last night was about Arabella Lennox-Boyd.

    Most of these 'tempter' programme ads are for the more obscure channels one can only get by subscription?

    It's a good series - I watched when it was first on last year. Definitely about gardens and garden design more than gardening. Sky Arts is free on Virgin for me (channel 123) but I think it's also on Freeview? Try channel 11.

    I think I've seen it before too, but I can't remember which channel it was on. I think I enjoyed it, but not so much that I'd go out of my way to watch it again.

    I watched this series last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Very informative and engaging.

    Sadly don't have Sky Arts either and I am sucker for anything gardening!
    I wish I could garden all year round!
