Good Morning, Are you watching this prog?

17 comments


Is anyone watching or recording the tv. prog. ’ Around the world in 80 gardens’, with Monty Don?? I have only just found it as I rarely put the tv. on on a Sunday am! But caught this prog. this morning and it is delightful, I am going to research and see if it is repeated because I am quite sad that i have missed other programs. This week he was in S.Africa, it was pure escapism and absolutely brilliant to see many of the plants that we try to grow, growing there in their natural habitat. Just thought I would share this info. :)

I've seen it before...it was first shown a year or two back. lovely programmes....I seem to recall there was an amazing garden in Italy in the series which I liked, and I loved the Indian part...especially seeing all the tea plantations in Kerala. :)

Hi Cosmo.......I'm sure you can watch it on catch up, not sure when this series started and not sure what I have missed either! Hope you find it.
Thanks for that tip Rogi :)
and Karen did you see the Sth African one? I saw the Italian series and really enjoyed that but hope I haven't missed the Indian part. I have got the prog. to series tape now so I don't miss anymore. Lol Nice to watch when it's wet & cold.

I'm about a day and a half late reading this lol behind as usual :D
Thanks for telling people about it anyway. I hope some were lucky enough to see it.
I think I saw some of the progs when they were previously on.

Snap, Hywel ! Late as usual, I am ! I will have to look out for this on utube as Rogi said, although I'm more interested in British gardens! Thanks for showing this Grandmage.

Hi there everyone............have been away at my daughters as usual so have come back to a few comments! Waddy how can you not like our Monty, I love his gentle voice, suppose I am smitten :) Thanks Driad (pics from google about the prog) SBG....did you mean to say you are NOT keen on Monty ?? Couldn't think of any one better to do it :) TB. I only found this by mistake as I am always on the look out for gardening progs. Holly, glad you enjoyed the last series, didnt even know it had been on, where have I been? Hi Hywel doesn't matter that you are late, you are still in time for next Sunday Lol. Rose this prog is on every Sunday, think it is a series, which I have recorded and it so beautiful looking around the world. Dd. I wonder when this was on before and how did I miss it? Hb. you could record this one too it is before GW & BG I do the same Lol :) something then to watch during the week. Never mind, I am glad it has been repeated. Thanks all, enjoy if you are viewing.
