They'll be no shortage of gardening programmes on TV next year with several old favourites returning and also some new series. Andy Taylor has been finding out what's planned for 2017.
Love Your Garden has just returned for a fifth series, David Hall has been watching how Alan Titchmarsh and his team have been transforming outdoor spaces and neglected gardens into attractive living areas.
During the current series, deserving people from all over the country have beautiful new gardens created for them, and viewers inspired to replicate the ideas and designs.
The first episode centred on a young widow with three children. Her late husband had started working on the garden and by the end of the programme she had a wonderful outdoor space with profiled pavers, a water wall and outdoor photograph, and wooden tepee for the children.
Further episodes feature the youngest soldier ever to be awarded the George Cross and a couple made homeless after their home and garden was destroyed by floods last year.
All the gardens will reflect their owners interests and passions, and these range from Bollywood to the Meditteranean.
Garden experts David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill assist Alan, sharing tips and techniques that everyone will find useful.
The final episode highlights a wildlife garden that was created a year ago for a hospice in Luton, and we'll see whether it's now attracting bees, birds and butterflies.
Whatever your experience and gardening skills, I think you'll find Love Your Garden full of informative ideas on how to re-design an existing garden or create a brand new one.
Love Your Garden is on ITV1 at 8.00 each Wednesday evening.
