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.
Regular readers of the Gardener blog will recall last year's 'Shed Of The Year' competition. Martyn Loach now reports on the remarkable structures vying for the 2015 accolade.
Featured again as part of Channel 4's 'Amazing Spaces' series, there has been a record breaking 2520 entries for this year's competition.
Last year the top prize was claimed by an Allotment Roof Shed which survived intense competition from a Mobile Disco Shed and a two storey Teapot Shed.
Instead of placing his shed on an allotment, the winner had the bright idea of putting an allotment on his shed. So inside there's a music room and workshop, while above potatoes, leaks, beetroot and host of other vegetables happily grow.
There are eight categories this time around including 'normal' which seems to be a contradiction in terms. The others are Eco, Cabin/Summerhouse, Workshop/Studio/ Unique, Pub, Budget and Historical.
Extraordinary and wacky creations abound, spectacular examples of inspired and eccentric design, in which the owners can work, play or perhaps surprisingly live.
Among the finalists there's a night club filled with car boot purchases, a pirate's retreat with caribbean memorabilia, a shack with World War 2 gun turrets, and a 'shedservatory' with an opening roof that reveals a telescope.
To vote for your favourite shed, go to the Shed Of The Year website.
Remember if you're not quite ready for a shed that might be a winning entry, there's always an impressive selection of very practical and easily assembled timber, metal and plastic sheds from all the major manufacturers on Gardensite.
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.
