Good Morning Kleipieper.
Thankyou so much.
Hi Kleipieper, thanks so much for keeping us informed on all these programmes. Brilliant!
Oohh, gosh, thanks everyone for all your positive comments .
Glad that you like the links.
I'll try to keep posting as many as I can find, so watch this space...
Good morning everyone Quite a lot of new stuff today.
First the latest episode of Jardins et Loisirs. They visit some gardens and have an item about a guy who builds all sorts of sheds and summer houses for a living. Plant of the week is Hypericum Magical Red.
Next the German MDR Garten.This time a special about gardens in Normandie, including Monet's garden.
ZDF aired the next episode of Der Nachbar in Meinem Beet. This is of course that show where two neighbours renovate eachother's garden. Makes me wonder where on earth they find these people. This week one of them had her nails freshly manicured in pale pink and said she wouldn't be able to do anything which could damage her nails. The sturdy young woman nextdoor and her friend refused even to put small paving slabs into a wheelbarrow, saying that it was too heavy for women . At one point the professional landscapers who were helping them even walked out, because those women made them do all the work.Here is the link for anyone brave enough to watch ...
I also found something on ARTE. Not really a gardening programme, but one where they try to get children interested in all sorts of exotic fruits.
Here is the programme in German.
And the French version.
Very autumnal weather here today, brrrr. But I've found some nice programmes to watch .
This week's Great Gardening is all about potatoes and root vegetables .
And the new episode of Querbeet has items about making lavender oil, pests in the garden, cherries, growing vegetables on a balcony and they've visited some gardens.
Next an older one about the botanic garden in Geneve.
And I found a real oldie . It's from the USA from 1941 about Victory Gardens.
Have a lovely day, whatever the weather!
Good morning everyone !
Some of the usual programmes aren't around today , but I did find a new one . It's an American one and this episode is about natural pest control. Not the mose visually interesting programme though .
I also found a German programme about asparagus.
And a nice French programme about secret gardens in Paris.
And of course the latest episode of my local Dutch gardening programme. They visited the herb garden at the National Open Air Museum and the Sonsbeek park. Sonsbeek is the Dutch equivalent of the Chelsea Hospital.
And finally some audio. I stumbled across the archives of the Hay Festival , and look what I found there...
