Planned TV Gardening Programmes 2018

There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, tips and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2018.

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.

RHS Shows

You'll be able to enjoy increased coverage of major Royal Horticultural Society shows this year. This is because the BBC have struck a four year deal with the RHS to broadcast programmes from not only Chelsea (22-26 May) and Hampton Court (3-8 July) but the Malvern Spring Festival (10-13 May) and the flower shows at Chatsworth (6-10 June) and Tatton (18-22 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.

Gardeners' World

RHS activities will also be highlighted on the new series of Gardeners' World which, like sunshine follows rain, returned to BBC Two on 9 March, with the weekly hour long programmes at 8.00pm once again revolving around the ubiquitous Mr Don, his Herefordshire garden and his two dogs.

Love Your Garden

Alan Titchmarsh and his team, David Domoney, Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill returned to our screens on 24 July (ITV), transforming the neglected outdoor living spaces and bedraggled gardens of deserving people while imparting helpful advice along the way.

Garden Rescue

Charlie Dimmock's Garden RescueCharlie Dimmock's Garden Rescue is back on BBC One and BBC Two 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

Don't forget that hidden away in the schedules if you are in not in Scotland, The Beechgrove Garden returned on 22 April for another 26 week run. North of the border you are able to watch this hardy annual antidote to Gardeners' World every Thursday at 7.00 in the evening but down south you have to set the alarm for 8.30 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. There's always a feature on 'problem' gardens and another that celebrates the best Scottish gardens and gardeners.

Hydrangeas in the garden

Great British Garden Revival

As a result of the plethora of channels that we can now reveive, series that have literally gone past their prime can turn up in the most unexpected places. Previously prime time on the BBC, this series is now on the Community Channel. It features a number of horticultural celebs who were particularly keen on certain plants or garden styles, so once again at various times during the week you can see Diarmuid Gavin wax lyrical about lavender and Joe Swift celebrate creepers and climbers.

Super Garden

Every Thursday evening over in Ireland, RTE viewers can watch five amateur designers try and impress a panel of judges with their garden transformations. Ranging from a geotechnical engineer to the manager of a Chinese restaurant, the wannabe designers compete against each other in an attempt to showcase their talent at Bloom 2018, Ireland's largest garden festival.
