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.
Channel 4's Shed Of The Year was announced last night, and Nathan James Dodd watched as the Inshriach Distillery at Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands won by the narrowest of margins.
From over 2500 other entries, the decision rested between the distillery and an Owl House, made from re-cycled materials and featuring two huge glass eyes, that had won the 'Eco Shed' category.
The judges were unable to come to a decision, so the public vote was taken into consideration and the distillery won.
Only a few years ago the winner was a dilapidated hen house, Walter Micklethwait has transformed it into a farm shop, saloon, ladies' waiting room and a working gin still.
Beating off competition from other entrants who he recognised as better craftsmen and authentic eccentrics, the winner had his own G&T on hand to celebrate.
The competition carried a prize of £1000 from the sponsors Cuprinol, plus £100 of their products, and the old hen house now has a giant golden crown and plaque.
As the presenter George Clarke said ' People are embracing the fascinating world of sheds like never before', however your shed needn't be as quirky as those featured on the show.
If you want to extend your living space into the garden, GardenSite has a huge range of practical timber, metal and plastic sheds from all the well known manufacturers that will satisfy most people's needs.
