Relax for half an hour a day ...

21 comments


If you feel there just aren’t enough gardening programmes on TV, take a look at Gardening Together on BBC2 each evening this week at 6.30pm.

I have just watched two episodes, back to back, and found them totally relaxing, all set in Ireland with Diarmuid Gavin answering garden queries, designing gardens for folk and showing viewers his own house and garden.

Down here on the South coast, the gale force winds are howling around the house, pots have been blown over too many times, twigs from neighbour’s trees are swirling around my garden and I’ve closed the curtains to shut it all out!

I hope everyone is keeping safe and cosy indoors tonight!

I quite agree with you,Shirley...such a refreshing take on a 'Gardening ' programme. So relaxing and how interesting Diarmuid is.Infact,I think I will record a few incase we are forced to stay in with the return of any more storms.

I have missed these so thanks for the heads up. We had a rough weather day yesterday but today is much better. There doesn't appear to be much damage though lots of leaves and small twigs on the ground from the large perimeter trees.

I am pleased that nobody has reported any major damage after the wild weather of yesterday. Much calmer today with sunshine ... :o)

Thanks for that info, Shirley! I watched a back episode of Gardener's World this afternoon. Been a few weeks since I watched one! Thanks to the BBC iPlayer I can watch the programmes whenever I want - or remember!

Thank you for that - I had no idea there was another gardening programme on the BBC. Maybe I’ll record it as it’s right in the middle of supper time 🙂

Balcony, I have been recording GW on a Friday evening and watching it on a Saturday. That way I can fast forward any item(s) that hold no interest for me .....

Sheila, it's just a very relaxing half hour ... :o)

Hope you enjoy it Hywel.

Glad you liked this programme too ... Diarmuid comes across as being really interested in all the subjects he talks about. I wasn't too keen on those chickens though ... :o(

I love how’s he’s built a wrap around veranda onto the back of his house.

30 Aug, 2020

 

Yes, a very clever addition to a new build property. The views of the garden must be fabulous .....

I watched the first episode & found it very interesting! When I remember I'll watch some more!
