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.
Gardeners' World Live begins today at the NEC in Birmingham, Nathan James Dodd reports on what you will find at this popular annual show.
Green fingered enthusiasts from all over the country will visit Gardeners' World Live over the next few days, and this fabulous show has something to offer everyone.
Inside the exhibition halls there are trade stands that offer everything from greenhouses to water gardens, power tools to garden furniture.
You'll also find the main Theatre where well known personalities including Monty Don, Alan Titchmarsh and Carol Klein offer advice on a range of topics during their informative and entertaining talks.
On the Potting Shed Stage, you'll hear specialist advice regarding small gardens solutions, there's also demonstrations on gardening successfully in compact spaces.
Vegetable gardeners will not be disappointed with the amount of practical tips that they can gain from talks taking place on the Grow Your Own Stage.
Outside there's a landscaped area taken over by the Plant Village, Plant Market Place and a huge Floral Marquee which is packed with displays and demonstrations from top nurseries and growers with stands offering a marvellous range of plants.
Everyone is catered for, and if you have a specialist interest such as flower arranging, growing cacti, bonsai or carnivorous plants, you'll find expert advice readily available.
Rose growers will be delighted to find the wide selection there is to purchase, you can also see the launch of new varieties and listen to top growers sharing the secrets of their success in the Rose Festival.
The show gardens represent an eclectic range of influences, and this year GardenSite donated a Rowlinson Haven Corner Arbour to the 'Legacy' garden, designed by Andy Tudbury to commemorate the life of Geoff Hamilton.
Other gardens celebrate the Birmingham canals along with community gardening, Capability Brown and the English High Tea. Another, appropriately as it's Father Day on Sunday, is entitled 'The Man Garden'.
Beautiful Borders are also showcased, together with Gardening For Wildlife if you want to encourage birds, bats and bees as well as other flora and fauna.
Whether you're an enthusiast or beginner, they'll be something to interest and inspire you at this show, and you're more than likely to return home with wonderful ideas and plants.
Gardeners' World Live is taking place at the NEC Birmingham on 16th - 19th June 2016.
This guide by Andy Taylor is all about battery powered lights, a very safe way to decorate your home with festive colour. With low running costs and bright LEDs, batteries may be the smart choice this Christmas.
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.
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.
Christmas wreaths, swags and garlands might be thought a little old fashioned, but Robert Hall thinks that modern versions of these traditional decorations are a fabulous way to combine tradition with colourful contemporary themes.
