I thought the video was getting it so never checked (grump grump)

I've asked the makers about a DVD - will let you know how that goes but they're bound not to DVD it until it's finished on telly I imagine.
Check out our books - ideal presents

John - I was going to point out you'd just passed 666 in your number of posts but I'd better shut up.
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

Well I got to see it :)
Quite interesting but obviously made for a different format. Tickled me to see the biodynamic grower using nicotine insecticide, which is really quite a nasty poisonous chemical.
Overall, I think 7 out of 10 but it beats Gardener's World hands down.

Thanks to the BBC - yet again they decided the North West doesn't deserve the programme - managed to catch the second half on satellite.
I think this is a good example of the contempt the BBC have for viewers -

I missed it last week, and only caught the last half hour this week.

I really can't figure the BBC - they advertise a program then change things around without saying a word. If they don't think it's worth showing then don't but this is just pathetic.
I mean they fill prime time with makeovers and decking and gardeners world growing the odd veg in a designer tin can but a decent program gets kicked about so everyone loses interest.
Mind you, look what they did with Dr Who - ignore the fans, take it off and now they finally bring it back and everyone raves about it.
As for the licence fee - I reckon it's a disgrace. You pay through the nose for a load of rubbish
Time for me to go to the lotty and work off my grumpy mood - which isn't helped by hayfever.

I didn't think this week's was that informative - they're more interested in the "characters" than the allotments.

I've had no response about a DVD - I expect they may if the contract allows.

I quite enjoy what bits I've seen -  reminds me of my favourite saying "Three gardeners and you get four opinions"

I don't think you will hear about it available on DVD, as I read on a site that originally when it aired in 2005, it was axed after 3 episodes. After some complaints they showed it regionally.

I keep missing it, was even hoping a for a resource to download it from the net, but no luck so far.

I actually got to watch it today for the first time!  Its a long story, but I can't record on my main TV and never figured out how to record on the little one upstairs, but did it this morning and actually got it to tape, then watched it after lunch!!!
