I have to say I thought the programme was pretty lame. Typically whimsical daytime fare. Sorry! :-\

I think first episodes can often be a little slow coz they are mapping out the characters and areas and it is often all too easy for us  to criticise!!!!

I enjoyed it and shall be watching all week  :D

Moonbells - you must have been pleased to see someone planting by the moon  :)

Buzzie Lizzie - I agree that there are a  broader range of peeps on lotties

Wardy - Can,t give our lotties away either  :(

Haven't seen it yet - hubby wanted to watch previous night's recordings...  but I don't believe in this moon planting I'm afraid.  I just bung stuff in when I've time - life's too busy to wait for free time and the weather otherwise!

As a "newbie" and hopefully, eventually a "lifer" at this delightful addiction, I just eased into the spare seat at the Wednesday club. Easygoing style, informative (for me anyway) and just what the doctor ordered. I would have liked to see a bigger age spread, but maybe that will come. Wonder if they would turn it into a soap  ......   {:¬)#
The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is the fact that it has never tried to contact us.

As a newbie I thought it was a good programme, and simon Mayo wasn't patronising like I thought he would be ;D  Picked up a few good tips for my lottie (eg newspaper in potato trenches).  Mind you weren't some of the Highgate people posh!!  Also wish I could have a well fitted out shed on my lottie but I reckon it'd last about an hour with the local chavs >:(
Couch grassin', ever diggin', bed mulchin', back breakin', poo spreadin', slow livin', veg growin'....Andy!

Blimey, didn't realise it was on for two weeks. Good job my DVD recorder has a whopping great hard drive!

Haven't seen the first one yet, will watch when the wife's out or busy, as I know she only tolerates my gardening programmes.

Don't suppose anyone would be so kind as to furnish me with the VideoPlus codes for the programmes from Wednesday onwards? I'll just have to try and get a TV mag, else. Don't normally bother.

Belay that last request, I found the codes all on the Radio Times website. You can search by programme and it lists every episode, with a bit of a summary.

Marvellous.

Those VideoPlus+TM numbers in full for the rest of the series, should they be useful to anyone:
