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.
Following on from GardenSite's successful television advertisements earlier in the year, Senior Partner Robert Hall explains why terrestrial TV is being used for the first time in the current campaign.
In January, GardenSite launched its first advertising campaign, the results were impressive and now, in addition to Sky, the commercials will be appearing on ITV1.

If you are in the Greater West Midlands, which stretches from the West Country to the Potteries, you can catch our advertising during Alan Titchmarsh's popular 'Love Your Garden' programme.
The reasoning behind this new strategy is that although the advertising primarily concerns our online offering, many people in the West Midlands also have the opportunity to visit our garden centre in Birmingham, where many of the products are on display and where you can get expert advice.
Available in several shapes and sizes, Affinity ponds represent an easy way to add a pond to your garden. They can be located on your patio and have side windows so fish can be viewed in their natural environment.
Henri Studio Water Features are world renowned for delightful original designs that are expertly crafted and hand finished. They can make perfect focal points and centre pieces for your garden.
'Create Your Perfect Space' is the slogan that we'll continue to use, as it most accurately reflects our mission to help you achieve a outdoor space that is most attractive and relaxing.
Partnering us in this campaign is our advertising agency, TTMA - The Traditional Media Agency. Although formed as a Media Planning and Buying Agency only in 2015, they have over sixty years' experience in buying advertising on Television. Radio, Print Media, Billboards, Transport Advertising, Cinema and more.
Richard Whiley, pictured with Katharine Dean the co-founder of the agency, and Robert Hall says that the team at TTMA is 'proud to have been chosen to work with GardenSite on their first television campaigns and they look forward to carrying on the good work in the future'.
Many people believe that Christmas would not have the same festive feel without the scent of a 'real' Christmas tree. They're naturally fresh, giving off a lovely aroma, and here Martyn Loach gives advice on which ones to buy..
There's a huge selection of Premier Christmas Lights, and it's no wonder why they are market leaders judging by the variety and innovation that's on offer. This is Andy Taylor's guide to their range of top quality lights and decorations.
When purchasing a Christmas tree, you may or may not be aware that you're continuing a centuries old tradition that was enthusiastically adopted by the Victorians. An artificial tree as Andy Taylor explains is just a modern take on this age old practice.
In the past Christmas decorations were limited to streamers and fairy lights, but not any more as Robert Hall discovered when reviewing the huge range of novelty Christmas items that are brought to life by LEDs.
