About gardens but not so useful in gardening!

Most of these podcasts are talks about the great gardens and gardeners of the 20th and 21st centuries. Informative about gardens and horticulture but not useful in gardening for yourself particularly - with the exception of the talk by Sarah Raven which is hugely informative on cut flower farming.

One of the best gardening programmes

An outstanding gardening programme which manages to pull off the very difficult challenge of providing expert advice and interest for all levels of gardener. David Maxwell is an excellent host setting the tone of this programme, providing support and genuine empathy for callers, while at the same time providing a ‘Dr Watson’ role to the stellar cast of very likeable but clearly very knowledgable professional gardeners. This programme is a credit to BBC Northern Ireland and greatly enjoyed by this gardener from South East Scotland.
