Gardeners World



  • Toby was ok But there were loads better   Sorry !!  >image


  • Who are the loads better than Toby Buckland, Graceland? Alan Titchmarsh of course is great, also Monty. But other than the Gardeners World team ( Joe etc) who else is there? I agree that there aren't enough gardening programmes on TV. Would like some on in the Winter as well.

    Arthur Billitt

    Monty Don

    all better than  

    Toby Buckland but he was ok  



  • The Gardeners World Christmas Special was excellent, i allways enjoy G W programmes irrespective of  who presents them, in my opinion it is the content that matters. Like most gardeners i am already experiencing withdrawal symptoms now that the G  W  season has come to a end.however i have three Geoff Hamilton c'ds featuring cottage, paradise, and ornamental kitchen gardens which  are a great source of inspiration.

    Seasons greetings to all at G W

    I would like to agree with gardengirl6 there are not enough gardening programmes on TV.  The programme schedulars seem to think gardeners have no interest in gardening in the winter.  What about programmes about planning a garden in the winter which is when most gardeners do think about the next seasons' planting.

    GW is fine as far as it gooes but does not really get down to the nitty gritty, we need a programme for beginners and a programme for established gardeners with new planitng suggestions.  The programmes would not have to be long just have more interesting content.  And please next time can we have less shots of Monty trapsing up and down his hedged beds with the dog.  He must have more garden than that.

  • <p class="MsoNormal">I much preferred Gardeners World with Tony Buckland, Monty does not inspire me as  Tony once did. I think he was removed because of ratings and wingers, whatever the politics I do not enjoy Gardeners World as much as I use too but that again could be due to content.

    As I am semi-retired, I find that spare time is at a premium these days. Northumberland gets dark quite quikly at this time of the year, relatively, to say Surrey, and even Herefordshire, so, I tend to let the lotty go rest in peace for about three months. The mustard green manure is waving in the winter gales, and sunflower heads are providing refuge for whatever bugs care to use them. I see no takers so far !! 

    The Monty v Buckland squabble will rumble on, and I find Bucky was a likeable feller, and more dare I say, 'down to earth' than Monty, who seems to have an unlimited amount of financial wedge behind him, twisting the TV company to support his own garden. I am not 'AGAINST' Monty, but not with him either. I just don't connect with the vast resources he has.

    I love Carol, she is so inspiring with her enthusiasum, I love Monty and Joe as well and have followed a lot of their advise, my hub says Monty has made a lot of work for him and if he ever met him, well, best not mentioned!!!.imageimage
