Gardeners’ World

LONG-SERVING horticultural hoedown expertly nailing that weird stepped-into-another-universe vibe you get from entering your common or – ho ho – garden Garden Centre, often opting for unusual presentational venue gambit of the presenters’ own garden. Seedling Tips Ahoy content of little use to younger viewers, yet they still had no choice but to sit through it, as BBC2’s notorious predeliction for overrunning early evening sport invariably caused either it or close pal Victorian Kitchen Garden to eat into the timeslot of your favourite psuedo-alternative comedy show by upwards of seven minutes. A special word also for the quite startling theme music employed in its heyday, in which a deafening volley of sweeping strings spiralled upwards through a wonky melody to an agogness-occasioning crescendo.

    Please please bring back Toby and the team especially the lovely Joe and his allotment. We want real gardeners not fancy ones. Let Mondy Don travel the world looking at gardens, great if thats what you want to watch but we want Toby and the team back showing ordinary folk what to do and how to do it cheaply.
