The Great British Revival started tonight which is a new gardening series, We have 10 episodes to look forward too between now and the 10th Jan 2014. This is a new style gardening program aiming to encourage us all back out into the garden They have brought together 14 TV gardeners to start the gardening revival. Episode one see Monty Don banging on about Wild flowers trying to encourage us all to add a few to our own gardens. I even discovered that there is a British Scything Association which is a new association too me. In the second half of the program see's Joe Swift pushing for the greening of our front gardens with more and more front gardens being concreted over. Which has increased localized flooding so he hopes to encourage more of us to get digging up the concrete and planting up the space to increase drainage and reduce pollution.
I felt that it was a great new program of which we need more lets hope it is not just a garden revival but a gardening TV revival as well.
