Does anyone on here watch this show? It is a British reality TV show that seeks to transform a nominee's plain backyard into a beautiful garden. The transformations of these people's yards are truly stunning and amazing. If you have Netflix, you should check this show out. I have also found old episodes on Youtube if you are interested to see them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

I am also going to post this on All Things Gardening Forum.

I have not heard of it, but I used to watch a British murder mystery show more for the beautiful gardens than for the show, which I thought was entertaining. I think it was called Rosemary and Thyme, about 2 professional gardening ladies who kept running into dead bodies. They made amazing gardens, but I would have been afraid to hire them

Karen. Thanks so much for the url. I watched it and was just amazed and stunned at the gorgeous gardens. I bookmarked it so I can go back and look at others in the series.

I am glad that you like the the show, Mary! I really enjoy them too. I went through 7 episodes this past week! Mr. Alan Titchmarsh is such an engaging speaker and host. I have learned many great tips for gardening and landscaping from watching his shows. For example, I had no idea that the trick to growing tender and sweet greens is to water the plants frequently and generously until harvest. They require watering 2 times a day! I have always had problems with growing good tasting greens. My greens had always tasted bitter and tough. That's because they did not get enough water that's required for quick lush growth.

Oh. Maybe that is why my greens are kind of bitter and tough also. I tend to underwater the raised beds.

I am planning to over water my greens this year to see if this trick will work in producing tender sweet greens. Smiling Smiling

Water combined with cooler weather seem to be the trick here. It gets too hot and the tastes of the greens turns bitter. Best in zone 5 early spring and early fall.
