Over several series, Alan Titchmarsh's team from the popular ITV programme 'Love Your Garden' has transformed gardens throughout the country using a varied range of traditional and new products, some donated from GardenSite and all available online.
Charlie Dimmock returned to our screens last week with Garden Rescue and Nathan James Dodd has been catching up on what has been happening in this latest garden transformation programme.
Garden Rescue features Charlie Dimmock and two younger designers transforming unattractive plots into gardens where you really do want to spend some time.
It's been over ten years since she made her name on Ground Force and the Rich brothers are award winning landscapers with their own take on revitalising a garden.
Faced with Charlie's ideas of how their garden should look and an alternative design from the brothers, the garden owners have to decide on which one they prefer.
The gardens are in a variety of locations but all are in need of a makeover that takes the form of various themes including Mediterranean, Japanese and child friendly.
Budgets are quite generous to enable plenty of planting and hard landscaping but predictable difficulties and challenges occur along the way.
Some of these result from the brothers inability to follow instructions, others demand amendments to the plans as they progress. But everything works out in the end.
Charlie and the boys pass on tips as they go, for example whether to pay out for pre-seeded wild flower turf or prepare the ground and sow your own seed.
You are also taken to established gardens to see how their ideas will develop over several years, and experts are on hand to demonstrate gardening techniques.
Whether contemporary or more traditional, so far all the householders have been more than pleased with the results of their garden makeover.
Garden Rescue continues every night this week at 7.00pm on BBC2.
TV shows regularly ask GardenSite for help in making programmes, and sometimes our customers also appear in them. That was the case recently when Channel 5's 'Dream Kitchens and Bathrooms' featured Akil and Samina Beckford who unusually wanted to turn their bathroom into a rain forest.
With spring encouraging everyone out into the garden and the threat of frost disappearing during May, David Coton is in no doubt that May is going to be one of the busiest months of the year.
With warmer weather arriving, this is the best time of the year to be stocking up on bedding plants to fill planters, borders and hanging baskets. Our garden centre becomes noticeably busier and the number of jobs that need to be done around the garden begins to accelerate. David Coton has these suggestions to keep you occupied.
No-one can say our weather is predictable but what can be foreseen is that a huge amount of new stock is being delivered to our Garden Centre to celebrate the end of lockdown and the arrival of spring which officially starts on the 20th March,
