Interesting Andrea ... well done on spotting this.

Here's the text for anyone who can't manage the link ...

The presenter is in addition to current presenters Monty Don, Carol Klein, Joe Swift and Rachel de Thame.

The show has been running since 1968. Don has been lead presenter since 2011.

The BBC has yet to announce its 2016 schedule, saying that will be revealed in the second or third week in January.

Klein said last year that the BBC did not give presenters word that they would be working on the show, which usually starts in late February and runs until November, until the New Year.

The advert states: "BBC Bristol are currently looking for potential presenters for a new series of Gardeners’ World. Previous television experience is desirable but not essential, as long as you are an enthusiastic and passionate communicator about plants and gardening. Contact Helen Cawley, or tel: 0117 974 2309 or 07729 260633 before January 22nd."

The position is "additional" to the current presenters, who the BBC see as a "good solid team".

A BBC spokesperson said: "The note has just been put out to see who’s out there, that’s it."

Oh I could major in Wabbits ?
Think the resident stoat family are doing more than I ever could to solve the problem.......

Truffle and Conker could audition.......between them they'd steal the show and be such fun bless them xxx

If they want to ring the changes a Goy team would work very well. We have super growers all over the UK. Hywel with his Fuchsias and Cactus, Cottagekaren with her themed borders and beautiful roses, Pcw with his alpines, Bjs on Galanthus and Primulas, Moongrower on planting with the Moon, Bulbaholic on Bulbs and raised beds, Team Terra on gardening with pets. I could go on listing for ever but let us hear your choices. We are so lucky to have Team GOY available 24/7 365 days of the year. Having visited the gardens of Bjs and Cottagekaren I know they would give us all a totally different perspective if we could see them on TV.

I see this post was from about two years ago and we are obviously seeing the new presenters now. I think the BBC were "politically correct" in their choices of the different presenters we are seeing which is all well and good but surely gardening expertise is the main qualification.
