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

Except for three 'specials' Monty Don, his two dogs and familiar experts such as Adam Frost, Joe Swift and Carol Klein have disappeared for another winter but will be back again next spring for the 55th series. 

A-Z Of TV Gardening

You have to be up early to catch Carol Kirkwood as she trawls alphabetically through the gardening TV archives. Be prepared to be inspired by popular presenters from over the years as she features a different letter in each programme on BBC2 every Sunday morning.

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

ITV on Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings, Alan Titchmarsh and his team transform the gardens of people with a deserving back story, just as he did with the late lamented Ground Force.

Garden Rescue

Garden Rescue's: Charlie Dimmock and the Rich brothers

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

RHS Shows

The BBC has a contract with the RHS to cover all their shows until 2021. Unfortunately, the Malvern Spring Festival had to be cancelled but the Hampton Court Garden Festival went ahead on 5-11 July and after last year's online event, the Chelsea Flower Show returned in a new format much later in the year than usual between 21-26 September.
