The Horticultural Channel launches

At last something is happening in the world of gardening TV.
Tomorrow at 9 am sees the launch of The Horticultural, a new television micro-channel to be broadcast for the first time on Sky and Freesat.
Programmes can even be downloaded via iTunes. provides programmes for amateur gardeners and allotment holders throughout the UK. It offers practical advice on how to grow vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers plus information on how to keep chickens and bees.

Filmed all over the UK the programmes offer an insight into the people and the places that make up the network of allotment sites throughout the country.

I really hope this new channel does well and is followed by more inspirational gardening TV programmes .The UK is  a nation of gardeners and yet our screens are just full of soaps and sport – time for TV companies to wake up and smell the roses I think – anyone else agree on this one?

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
