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.
Enter your inspirational community gardening project into this year's Cultivation Street competition and Nathan James Dodd reports that you could be in line for the £10,000 first prize.
Now in its third year, and judged by Love Your Garden presenter David Damoney, Cultivation Street is a competition that aims to revitalise streets, promote community gardening projects, inspire people to take up gardening and bring communities together through gardening.
There are several categories in which you can enter:
New for this year, there's an award for the best wildlife community gardening project, and the most successful newcomers.
Schools are also catered for with three prizes for the most impressive pupil-led school gardens.
Joining the Cultivation Street campaign is an opportunity to improve the appearance of your street, meet the neighbours and make new friends. It's all about having fun while creating pride in your community
