Gardening TV Programmes I Whats On and When?

As the year progresses, this blog will be regularly updated with dates and times for your TV gardening programmes plus any information we have on features and personalities.

Monty Don's American Gardens

Enjoying a break from Longmeadow, Monty travels to the States for this new three-part series on BBC2 each Friday evening, repeated on Sunday morning. Visiting the country's most famous and interesting gardens in such places as Chicago, New York and Philadelphia, he attempts to discover whether they have a recognizable identity.

Gardeners' World

Monty Don and his two dogs bowed out in the autumn with the 52nd series of BBC's flagship gardening programme coming to an end, We'll have to wait until the spring before returning to Longmeadow. 

RHS Shows

Also, this year, as the BBC has a contract with the RHS until 2021, there will continue to be extensive coverage of major events next year at Chelsea (19-23 May), Hampton Court (6-12 July), the Malvern Spring Festival (7-10 May) and the flower shows at Chatsworth (11-14 June) and Tatton (22-26 July). 

Don't forget the Gardeners' World Live Show at the NEC from 18-21 June, and cameras will again follow the development of the brand new RHS Garden Bridgewater due to open in 2020. At 154 acres, this is the largest gardening development in Europe including an 11-acre walled kitchen garden and a Learning Centre.

The Instant Gardener

On Sunday mornings, Danny Clarke aka The Instant Gardener and Helen Skelton (Blue Peter and Countryfile) transform neglected gardens in one day and on a tight budget by using some imaginative ideas and intelligent design. Not the most original idea and not recommissioned but informative and entertaining nonetheless.

BeechgroveBeechgrove

Produced by the BBC in Aberdeen and taking on its current format in 1996, Beechgrove is going to be restored to 26 episodes in 2020, packed full of practical hands-on advice covering everyday gardening topics particularly those encountered in Scotland. 'Problem' gardens and the best Scottish gardens and gardeners will again be featured, and we'll also be introduced to novice gardeners and taken on their learning curve. 

Garden Rescue

Working on a restricted budget, gardening's one-time pin-up girl Charlie Dimmock and the gold medal-winning Rich brothers compete for the householder's thumbs up before going ahead with one of two designs that are presented. A new series is expected in the summer of 2020.

While We Wait...

If you can't wait until this year's garden shows are back on TV, why not recap on some of the highlights from last year.
