They'll be no shortage of gardening programmes on TV next year with several old favourites returning and also some new series. Andy Taylor has been finding out what's planned for 2017.
Nathan James Dodd describes how GardenSite have once again joined forces with garden designer Andy Tudbury by donating a Rowlinson Haven Corner Arbour to his show garden at this year's Gardeners' World Live event.
Last year GardenSite sponsored Andy Tudbury's garden at Gardeners' World Live and this year we donated a delightful arbour to act as the focal point of his 'Legacy' garden.
The garden commemorates the legacy of perhaps the most well known Gardeners' World presenter – Geoff Hamilton, who died twenty years ago.
He was well known for using recycled materials, that's why Andy, who runs Halcyon Days Garden Design, has chosen to use old scaffolding planks as the broadwalk that goes over a shallow gravel pool leading to the arbour.
A mass of cottage style plants surrounds the Haven Corner Arbour which is constructed from top quality pressure treated softwood, seats four people and can be stained or painted to complement the landscape.
Many of the plants have come from Barnsdale, Geoff's former garden, and there is a strong wild meadow influence reflecting his organic gardening philosophy.
Preparing the garden took nearly a fortnight and wasn't easy due to heavy rain, but the effort proved worthwhile as Andy was awarded a bronze prize by the judges.
After the event, the arbour will be transported to the East Midlands Flower show taking place at Newstead Abbey, and then it will be donated to a charitable cause.

With high winds increasingly affecting most parts of Britain, many people are likely to be contacting their insurance companies regarding damage caused to sheds, greenhouses, fences and other garden property. Robert Hall explains how GardenSite can help with an insurance quote and claim.
With gardens becoming smaller, neighbours closer and roads busier, we all suffer from different types of noise pollution. But, as Andy Taylor reports, Forest have now come up with a new kind of fencing that minimizes this nuisance.
Although gardening activity in February may not be so frenetic as during the summer months, there's still plenty to be done and Spring is just around the corner. Nathan James Dodd suggests the jobs you should be tackling in the garden this month.
