BBC Gardeners' World moves to a new 9.30pm slot on Friday nights for the rest of the series. Is this the new time slot for our favourite gardening programme?

BBC Two Gardeners' World Moves To 9.30pm

At the end of this week's episode in which Monty Don guided us through summer fruit pruning, Carol Klein went to Hampshire to discuss the virtues of St John's wort and Joe Swift visited a very unusual allotment in north London.

Monty then ended the programme sitting in his Jewel garden teasing his dog Nigel with a ball, before sadly revealing to the watching audience

"...For the rest of this series we will be coming on an hour later at 9.30pm. So I'll see you then."

Like most fans of the show this came as complete surprise to me and I wanted to know why.

Twitter followers immediately speculated that the later slot was due to more adult gardening issues being discussed or the usual spectre of sport was at work again changing the show's time. Overall most agreed that the new 9.30pm slot was too late for the show.

While no reason was given by Monty or the BBC website, we will just have to wait to find out the reason for the move to see if this is the new time slot for this great British television institution long term.
