Gardening TV Programmes, What's On and When?

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 in 2021. However, during the current government restrictions don't be surprised to see repeats filling gaps in a depleted schedule and other programmes adopting a different format.

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.

Gardeners' World

Now having its winter break, remotely controlled cameras and archived features were used to bring you last year's mix of practical seasonal advice. All the familiar experts such as Adam Frost, Joe Swift and Carol Kelin will return in March for the 54th series of this hardy perennial with the added bonus of amateur footage sent in from viewers. In the meantime, look out for 'special' episodes turning up on Sunday morning BBC2.

Your Garden Made Perfect

Consigning sketch pad and pencils to the bin, Your Garden Made Perfect, 8.00pm Thursdays on BBC2, uses virtual reality to bring garden design ideas to life. Each week homeowners are presented with expensive and low budget options, the couples don headsets and the latest VR technology allows them to walk around their plans, exploring the potential results far more convincingly than from a conventional drawing.

Glorious Gardens From Above

A high altitude perspective on the nation's great gardens, Christine Walkden periodically disembarks to give ground level insight into their history and how they are currently tended. Sunday mornings on BBC2.

Britain In Bloom

In another Sunday morning BBC2 offering, Chris Bavin interviews local enthusiasts have been regularly winning Britain in Bloom gold medals. They show him the new ideas they have to come up with each year, impressive projects that involve the whole community giving a hand.

Love Your Garden

Catch up with old episodes of this updated version of Ground Force featuring Alan Titchmarsh and his enthusiastic landscapers transforming grim gardens and weather beaten plots. All the garden owners have a back story that makes them deserving recipients of the team's horticultural expertise and hard work. Sunday luchtime on ITV.

Garden Rescue

Garden RescueWorking 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. Shown at various times and days on BBC1 and 2 and regularly repeated.

RHS Shows

The BBC has a contract with the RHS until 2021. Unfortunately, the Malvern Spring Festival has had to be cancelled but there'll be extensive coverage of the Hampton Court Flower Show (5-11 July). After last year's online event, the Chelsea Flower Show is returning in a new format much later in the year than usual, it will take place between 21-26 September. Also on the BBC schedule will be Gardeners' World Live at the NEC from 17-20 June 2021.
