There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2019.

Planned Gardening Programmes

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.

Gardeners' World

Throughout the summer on BBC2 every Friday evening, Monty Don and his two dogs present the BBC's flagship gardening programme from Longmeadow. Helping him with suggestions, tips and ideas on how to make the most of your garden whatever its size and location are well known faces such as Carol Klein, Joe Swift and Rachel de Thame.

RHS Shows

You'll continue to enjoy marvellous coverage of major Royal Horticultural Society shows this year, as the BBC have a contract until 2021 to broadcast programmes from not only Chelsea (21-25 May) and Hampton Court (1-7 July) but the Malvern Spring Festival (9-12 May) and the flower shows at Chatsworth (5-9 June) and Tatton (17-21 July).

Cameras will also follow the development of the brand new RHS Garden Bridgewater due to open in 2019. At 154 acres, this is the largest gardening development in Europe including an 11 acre walled kitchen garden and a Learning Centre.

The Great Garden Challenge

Another gardening programme from Channel 5 starts on Tuesday 2 July at 8.00pm. In each heat over the first four episodes, eight pairs of garden designers embark on a competition to transform unloved spaces belonging to hospitals, care homes and similar deserving causes into great gardens. They will receive a brief 14 days in advance and then have 48 hours to complete the task. Four winners will advance to the semi-finals and the final is a head-to-head contest to create a show garden at RHS Wisley. Nicki Chapman presents the show and judges include Carol Klein and Diarmuid Gavin:

Love Your Garden

Alan Titchmarsh and his team, David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill returned on the 22 April with the first of twelve half hour Monday evening programmes. Repeating the successful formula of Garden Force, neglected outdoor living spaces and bedraggled gardens are transformed while the owners, who have a deserving or inspiring back story, are away from home. The owner's friends and neighbours are roped in to help out, and helpful gardening tips and advice are passed on to viewers along the way before the final reveal.

North of the border you are able to watch yet another series of this hardy annual every Thursday evening, down south it moves around the Sunday morning schedule. Produced by the BBC in Aberdeen and taking on its current format in 1996, the programme is packed full of practical hands-on advice covering everyday gardening topics particularly those encountered in Scotland. There's always a feature on 'problem' gardens and another that celebrates the best Scottish gardens and gardeners. 

Garden Rescue

A new series of Garden Rescue can be caught on weekday afternoons on BBC One. Working on a restricted budget, gardening's one time pin-up girl Charlie Dimmock and the gold medal-winning Rich brothers will be vying for the householder's thumbs up before going ahead with one of two designs that are presented.

Glorious Gardens From Above

in this Sunday morning repeat, Gardeners' Question Time regular Christine Walkden explores gardens and countryside from a hot air balloon
