The A to Z of TV Gardening



  • Thanks for the heads up on this, just watched it over lunch and found it very educational!

    I wonder if I can graft another type of pear onto my tree...

    The one thing they didn't mention is what time of year is best?

    Superb - oh what a lovely colour Alys' beetroot soup was. and that lovely beetroot wine and what an inspiration the blind allotmenteer was and his clubroot free brassicas and those birds getting foreign names nd - but everyone must watch it.  Such a good program.

  • Yes, happymarion, the blind allotmenteer truly was an inspiration. As someone who has dabbled in home wine-making, I can confirm that beetroot does make an excellent wine, as does other root's down to the sugar content.

    I've been very critical of GW in the past, even feared for its future. But here we are, Aunty had the answer already in the can all the time. It's the format that makes this series a winner (IMHO) and an added bonus that we can enjoy it in the depths of winter.

    'Superb'....yes indeed! image

    Next weeks one will be good letter B all the beans which are good to grow, beetroot I never manage to grow this very well. Will probably watch on iplayer good that way. 

    Sorry you didn't get your beans, but you did get your beetroot in plenty. image

  • It's a bit of a pick and mix, isn't it, but very welcome to get us inspired. I seem to recall having seen some bits in other programmes previously, I have seen the apple tree item previously.

    What a boon it iplayer is!
