Why the Gap?
Why is ( and this is not a new phenomenom) Gardener's World filmed over a week before transmission? The weather is often totally different and the tasks are not as relevant. Lots of the show is prerecorded ( visits to growers etc) and need only to be patched in. Surely the bits from the main presenter's garden could be filmed on the day before transmission, not 9 days before as was happening this week ( according to MD's Twitter feed)
