Not just Geoff Hamilton (who was a superb broadcaster and inspirational gardener) - I was inspired by the Geoffrey Smith series ("Mr Smith's Vegetable Garden" and "Mr Smiths's Fruit Garden" - if I remember the titles correctly!) These were shown originally on Sundays - roundabout 1pm, I think. But the down-to-earth presentation was faultless. And worth repeating imo.
(Mind you, my memory may be failing - these series were first broadcast in the late 70s or early 80s, so that rather gives my age away )
I was smitten with Geoffrey Smith - when I'm on Desert Island Discs my luxury will be a recording of him on GQT waxing lyrical about all the plants you can grow in a shady garden
look forward to that Pam
Who was the broadcaster who said "the answer lies in the soil"?
