Haven't seen this chap for a while came across him by accident on iplayer. Quite interesting if your stuck indoors. Like an Irish Gardeners World.

I found it quite interesting . Worth a look if you want a gardening program to watch.

    It was a good programme, l'm hoping they make another series.

    It was on tv a while ago and many of us have enjoyed it. There was a thread on the forum too. I'm surprised it didn't get a bit more publicity though, as I think more people would have watched it. 
    I recorded and watched it recently. :)
    I'm a long time fan of Diarmuid, although I don't like Helen Dillon. They did a nice programme a few years ago too. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    It was tucked away at 6.30pm and I don't recall seeing a lot of publicity for it at the time, to be honest.

    I liked the style of the programme with the viewers landscaping sections and Diarmuid comes across as a gardener who doesn't take himself too seriously and is up for trying something and seeing what happens sort of gardening. Being Irish myself of course I loved the views of the countryside and hearing all the accents again.
    We needed an hour though...half hour was a bit short.
