Good morning everyone,
Very cold and wet here in The Netherlands again. But I do have a few new links for today.
First the German Gartenzeit. This week again with many items from the BUGA garden show. Roses, delphiniums, water lilies, Plant of the Year 2015: Carex, and more.
MDR Garten has items about how vegetables and herbs love and protect each other, and how to get tomatoes and beans to grow well in the garden.
The Belgian Jardins et Loisirs has summer programmes , which means nothing but visits to gardens. This week they visited gardens in Flanders.
I've also found a few Austrian programmes called Landträume.
That's all for today.
Have a lovely day!
good morning everyone,
Lovely sunny day here in The Netherlands.
Here is rthe latest batch of garden programmes from the web.
The Austrian Natur im Garten visited what they called a rural baroque garden.
ARTE has a new series of programmes about Royal gardens. They started with Hampton Court.
Or if you prefer the French version...
Their series about historic gardens in eastern Europe will continue next Sunday. They had a theme day about classical music last Sunday.
They did show a new episode of that series about fruits and veggies for children though. This one was about melons and broccoli.
Or in French...
A local German broadcaster had a programme which was mainly about roses. Mainly about what to do against pests and diseases.
Austrian broadcaster Servus TV aired the latest episode of Landträume. This time with gardens and landscapes in the Provence.
And I found two programmes on 3SAT. They are not really garden programmes, but I am definitely going to watch them. The first one is about a family who sold their house, gave up their jobs and bought an old farm house where they want to live the "good life".
The next one is similar, but in this case they even want to use as few modern, mechanical things as possible, so no tractor, but horses etc...
I'm about to get on my bike and ride to one of the many commercial orchards here in the region to buy cherries, yum.
Good morning everyone,
Rather grey again here in The Netherlands, but who knows, it may get better...
Several new programmes to watch on the web though, starting with the Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener. They are planting squash and melons.
The second episode of ARTE's series about Royal gardens is all about the gardens of Het Loo here in The Netherlands. This former hunting lodge was the home of William of Orange before he moved to Hampton Court and the gardens at Het Loo were the inspiration for the gardens at Hampton Court.
French version here...
The latest episode of my local Dutch garden programme Tuinen van Kleijs visited the gardens at Middachten. Those were designed by the same architect as the gardens at Het Loo, and the owners of Middachten were close friends of William.
And Austrian Servus TV showed a new episode of Landträume. This time from the region around Lake Constance.
Lovely sunny day here in The Netherlands. Maybe summer has finally arrived.
Here is today's harvest from the web.
The new episode of Master Gardening is all about bees.
3SAT has a programme about plants that were originally introduced as garden plants, but have become serious pests.
ARTE aired the final episode in the series about Royal gardens. This time about the gardens of Drottningholm in Sweden.
And finally two short ones from German regional broadcaster WDR. First one about urban gardening.
And one about cherries.
Another dry and Sunny day expected here in The Netherlands and the plants in my vegetable plot are now really putting on growth.
Here are the latest garden bits I found on the web, starting with the Mid-American Gardener. This time they cover topics ranging from fertilizing your peonies to planting your blackberries in the best location or managing violets.
Silence, ça pousse! has bits about furniture made of chestnut wood, Lyon, the capital of roses, and they visit Le parc Monceau.
Servus TV aired another episode of Landträume. This time about gardens and landscapes in the Tuscany region in Italy. I love these programmes.
I also stumbled across a series of short programmes about all sorts of private gardens in the Augsburg region in Germany. I love having a peek in other people's gardens.
And the latest episode of that Dutch perogramme in which they replace the pavement in someone's garden with plants has appeared on the web.
Have a lovely day, whatever you're doing!
Second attempt at posting, because just as I was about to hit the send button, my browser shut down .
Saturday again, and that means that Gardening Australia should be available to download from around 12.00.Here is what's in today's show.

The German Grünzeug has items about yet another visit to the local garden show, hedges with berries and they visit a mediterranean looking garden.
That's all I've found today.
Have a lovely Saturday!
A hot and sunny day expected here in The Netherlands.
As you may have noticed, Gardening Australia didn't upload the latest episode yet. That sometimes happens, and I expect they will upload tomorrow. They did however upload clips of the individual parts of the show.
Not many gardening programmes on the web today. There often seem to be fewer programmes during the weekend for some reason. I did find an older one from Frankfurt an der Oder, which has bits about children working in a school garden and they also visit an allotment site.
And a few oldies from Des Racines et des Ailes. This time about the Jardin des Tuileries and the Jardin des Plantes in Paris.
Have a lovely Sunday, hopefully with lots of Sunshine.
It's going to be hot this week, phew. But if it's too hot to garden, we can always watch the latest programmes on the web.
ARTE aired the latest in its series about historic gardens in eastern Europe. This time they visited a garden in Hungary and one in Austria.
And the French version.
They also aired the latest episode of that programme about fruits and veggies for children. This one is about coconuts and about peas.
Jardins et Louisirs has summer specials. This time all about bulbs.
And MDR Garten has items about young gardeners, edible plants and they made yet another visit to the BUGA garden show.
Have a lovely day, and don't forget the suncream if you're going outside!
The weather is hotting up fast now here in The Netherlands. We're supposed to reach 37 degrees here later in the week. Not sure I'll like it that hot though.
Here are today's programmes from the web.
Servus TV aired the latest episode of Landträume. This one is about the gardens and landscapes around the Lüneburger Heide in Gemany.
Querbeet has items about Phlox, Agapanthus, foreign invaders, the Bavarian State flowers and they visit a monastry garden in Sweden and a local garden
The American programme Garden Time has the following: How to make a entertaining patio, what plants work well at the coast, how to feed your birds and not the squirrels and the rats, how to pick cherries, how they hybridize daylilies, tips for watering your lawn more efficiently, the top 4 problems for roses, how to help your plants get through hot weather and some early summer plants.
And last Saturday's Gardening Australia has now been uploaded.
Have a lovely day, whatever you're doing, and take care if it gets really hot.
It's getting hotter again today here in The Netherlands, so gardening will have to wait until the evening.
Lots of new programmes on the web today.
The latest episode of Landträume is all about gardens and landscapes in the Versilia region north of Pisa in Italy.
The Austrian Natur im Garten visited the garden of someone who has always worked in nurseries and who has a lot of plants in the garden which were about to be thrown away by the nursery.
I also found the latest episode of the French un Jardin en Nous.
The latest episode of the Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener has bits about how to plant non GMO soybeans and why, shows how to make strawberry butter and talks about what to do with volunteers in your garden.
I also found a programme on ARTE which is called Peace Parks, Mandela's Last Dream. Not really about gardening, but about his dream to use nature, plants and flowers to help bring peace.
And finally the last episode of my local Dutch gardening pergramme Tuinen van Kleijs. He visited another local estate garden, a project to put plants on the roof of a car park in the middle of Arnhem for a few months and he visited garden designer Piet Oudolf at his home and garden in Hummelo.
Have a great day, and take care if you're out and about in the sun!
