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

With Monty and the dogs back at Longmeadow, the BBC's flagship gardening programme has begun a new series on BBC2 every Friday evening. Various experts such as Carol Klein and Joe Swift will be giving advice, tips and ideas on how to make the most of your garden whatever its size and location.

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.

Britain In Bloom

Running every weekday at 6.30pm on BBC2 is another series of Britain In Bloom, the neighbourhood gardening competition supported by the RHS. Each programme follows one of fifteen large and small communities as they prepare for the judges' visit, with regional and national winners qualifying for the UK finals.

The A - Z Of TV Gardening

Early risers on Sunday morning can watch repeats of various gardening programmes on BBC2, including a re-showing of this series with Carol Kirkwood trawling through old TV programmes for advice and inspiration by taking an alphabetical journey starting with A for apples, alliums and asparagus,

The Edible Garden and The Great British Garden Revival

Also before the repeat of Gardeners' World, two programmes worth watching a second time are The Edible Garden featuring Alys Fowler growing her own produce in a modest suburban back garden instead of buying it at the supermarket, and The Geat British Garden Revival has a raft of well known gardeners focussing on different aspects of Britain's horticultural heritage.

Love Your Garden

Alan Titchmarsh and his team, David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill will return to our screens in the summer. 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.

Garden Rescue

Charlie Dimmock's Garden RescueCharlie Dimmock's Garden Rescue will also be back on BBC at various times throughout the summer. Working on a restricted budget, gardening's one time pin-up girl and the gold medal-winning Rich brothers will again be vying for the householder's thumbs up before going ahead with one of the two designs that are presented.

The Beechgrove Garden

North of the border you will be able to watch yet another series of this hardy annual from 18 April 2019. Normally scheduled every Thursday evening but down south you have to set the alarm for an early start on a Sunday morning.

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.
