Good morning everyone ,
Here is today's harvest . First the new episode of Garden Time, and this is what's in it...
This week on the Garden Time show we check out ground covers for any condition, plant trials of the manzanita, we learn about June Drop, we have tried and true perennials, we make a lantern planter, we learn how to keep your cut flowers fresh, we visit a topiary grower, check out pears in a bottle, and see a liqueur that is made from tree bark.
I haven't had time to weatch it yet, but at the begining I saw what looked like a very strange bit of topiary .
And the French Silence, ça pousse!
They have items about roses, about vegetables with imperfect shapes which used to be rejected by supermarkets and they visit a garden.
Have a lovely day!
Here are today's programmes .
First the German Grünzeug. This time about an English garden in Germany, garden tips, unusual tomato varieties and a few other things.
Next the Mid-American Gardener. In this episode topics ranging from how to plant raspberries or pineapples to removing crab apple suckers to getting rid of fire blight on pear trees.
I also stumbled across another one from the USA.
Finally a few brilliant garden programmes called Gartenträume, or Reves de Jardins from ARTE. Unfortunately only available for a few days .French version available if you move mouse over right-hand top of video.
The first one is about a commercial herb garden in South-Tirol.

Good morning everyone, A few gremlins in the works today . Had the post ready twice, and both times it disappeared before I could post it .
Third time lucky though, I hope, so here goes...
First the latest episode of Great Gardening. This one is all about getting rid of weeds.
I also stumbled across a series which airs on BBC Wales. Not really a gardening programme, but it could be interesting. It's called The Farmer and the Food Chain. I can't watch it on iPlayer , because I live outside the UK, but here is the link for those who can watch .
I've also got an older series from a German broadcaster. It's not really a gardening programme either, but a docu-soap about the characters on a German allotment site. Quite entertaining though . And it shows how different German allotment sites are compared to those in the UK. In Germany you are allowed to build a real little house on your plot and spend the weekends or even the holidays in it.
Have a lovely Sunday!
Someone just alerted me to this one.. Alas, can't watch it myself , but I'm sure many of you can .
Thank you Kleipieper. I will have a good mooch later on. Must get in the garden now The sun I shining.
Same here . Have a lovely Sunday!
Good morning everyone
Another lovely day here, although on Saturday night we had frost!!!!
Four new links today. First the German MDR programme Mein Garten. This one is about roses, and about bumble bees . Loads of useful information about how to encourage them into your garden. I love bumble bees
Extra info here...
The next programme is Jardins et Loisirs. Another great programme this week with an item about orchids . Plant of the week is an alternative to the good old elm. And of course they visited a garden.
Next that German make-over game show.
And finally the latest episode of that French programme from the Laval region.
Have a lovely day, whatever you're doing !
