A long time ago, when the earth was green, I wrote a post listing my Top Ten gardening podcasts. For The Guardian newspaper’s gardening blog I’ve just done a reprise of my Top Five favourite gardening podcasts, and the good news is that the overall standard of gardening shows has hugely improved since my first write-up.
BBC Radio Ulster’s Gardeners Corner is still top of my list, thanks to the skills of its lead presenter, but honestly, all five in my list (including the new show by the RHS) are essential listening if you’re as fanatical about gardening as I am…and I think you probably are.
The picture above shows my garden in July — last July, actually. Hard to believe the warm days will ever return, but this rose hedge (rose de Rescht) is wonderfully hardy, and I know she’ll come back to me this summer.
Don’t forget to let me know if you have any other great shows you’d recommend. Really, I just can’t get enough.
