Over several series, Alan Titchmarsh's team from the popular ITV programme 'Love Your Garden' has transformed gardens throughout the country using a varied range of traditional and new products, some donated from GardenSite and all available online.
Following the popularity of the first series, the Great British Garden Revival returns to BBC Two in the new year. Nathan James Dodd finds out what endangered aspects of our gardening heritage will be featured.
During the first series top gardeners wanted to inspire viewers to save the nation's horticultural traditions. Placed under threat by front gardens being paved over and easy to maintain gardens, some of our favourite flowers and plants are in danger of disappearing altogether.
The increased risk of flooding and decline in wildlife, particularly birds and butterflies, caused by this new style of gardening was also highlighted.
The first series of this award winning programme wanted to make us proud of herbaceous borders, topiary, cottage gardens, cut flowers and ornamental bedding.
In each programme the presenters concentrated on a passionate interest and offered practical advice on its restoration and maintenance.
Following the same format, the subjects in the new series will be just as diverse, with knot and scented gardens featuring alongside rhododendrons and creepers.
All the presenters are well known for their work on other television gardening programmes.
They include Carol Klein who will focus on daffodils, Joe Swift is in a bog garden while Chris Beardshaw has tips on blossom trees and shrubs.
Alys Fowler, James Wong and Rachel de Thame are also appearing together with Diarmuid Gavin and Christine Walkden.
They will all be addressing the decline in traditional gardening, helping us to embrace once popular plants and techniques that made the British garden the envy of the world.
The Great British Garden Revival will begin on BBC Two in early January 2015.
Although the days are short and the view from our Garden Centre is dull and overcast, David Coton suggests various jobs that can be done in the garden during the month of January.
The Halls range of highly popular greenhouses has featured on GardenSite for many years, and for the 2019 season the UK's leading greenhouse manufacturer will have a new corporate image and a revolutionary new product – the Qube.
