Sounds like it’s time for a little dose of some great British gardening television. Sadly there have been no midwinter episodes of Gardeners’ World, but I was thrilled to find a new series of The Great British Garden Revival on Youtube. It’s not my man Monty, but there is plenty of plant loving going on. Check them out to get your gardening fix.
Episode 1: Roses, climbers and creepers
Episode 2: Daffodils and blossoming trees and shrubs
Episode 3: Rhododendrens and carnations
Episode 4: Scented gardens and tulips
Episode 5: Lavender and knot gardens
Episode 6: Irises and ornamental grasses
Episode 7: Conifers and pelargaroniums
The second season of the Big Allotment Challenge, where they have a gardening competition and contestants compete in grow, make and eat challenges, is also playing now and episodes are going up a day or so after they air across the pond. It’s not as fun as a real gardening show but it’s better than nothing.
