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.
Following on from GardenSite's successful television advertisements earlier in the year, Senior Partner Robert Hall explains why terrestrial TV is being used for the first time in the current campaign.

If you are in the Greater West Midlands, which stretches from the West Country to the Potteries, you can catch our advertising during Alan Titchmarsh's popular 'Love Your Garden' programme.
The reasoning behind this new strategy is that although the advertising primarily concerns our online offering, many people in the West Midlands also have the opportunity to visit our garden centre in Birmingham, where many of the products are on display and where you can get expert advice.
Available in several shapes and sizes, Affinity ponds represent an easy way to add a pond to your garden. They can be located on your patio and have side windows so fish can be viewed in their natural environment.
Henri Studio Water Features are world renowned for delightful original designs that are expertly crafted and hand finished. They can make perfect focal points and centre pieces for your garden.
'Create Your Perfect Space' is the slogan that we'll continue to use, as it most accurately reflects our mission to help you achieve a outdoor space that is most attractive and relaxing.
Partnering us in this campaign is our advertising agency, TTMA - The Traditional Media Agency. Although formed as a Media Planning and Buying Agency only in 2015, they have over sixty years' experience in buying advertising on Television.
