Very easy listening

Really enjoying these, the ones working from home seem so much better put together than the others and flow in a more natural conversation way than previous episodes!

Portsmouth 4 ever ,

Love it

I always listen to GQT whilst walking my dog, I absolutely love it, the advice is brilliant and there’s a lot of laughs too, my very favourite podcast, I’m always using their tips and advice in my allotment, if I’m doing something I always think “oh i remember hearing a tip about this on GQT”
Keep up the brilliant work, the best podcast ever.

Brilliant relevant tips

Have been listening to gardeners question time off and on since my 20s , has now become essential to my gardening life, even listening back over old progs you keep learning new things as the plants and your garden changes. Miss Eric Robson but Kathy is settling in well now. Onwards and upwards. A great backdrop to all those times when u can’t be gardening. Enjoy testing my knowledge and some of the dafter questions... and of course the gardening innuendos. Give it a try.
