Are you, like me, bummed out about the lack of good gardening shows on television? HGTV pretty much gave up on the "G" part of their name long ago. PBS used to have some good shows, including "Victory Garden," and in some parts of the country, they apparently still do - just not on our local KUHT. I don't know if the problem is a lack of money or if the powers that be at the station just don't think there is an audience for garden shows. They still show "Victory Garden" every Sunday but they have shown the same series of shows over and over and over for years now. If I see Jamie Durie make those bougainvillea trees one more time, I might just put my foot through the screen!
It turns out though that PBS does actually have another gardening show that is available in other parts of the country. It is "Growing a Greener World" with gardener Joe Lamp'l. As far as I know, there are no plans for KUHT to start carrying it, but the good news is that through the power of the Internet, you can watch it anyway! Just click on this link and select the episode you want to watch and click on the title and you can watch the show right there on your computer screen.
I've watched a few of the episodes already and I think the show is pretty good. Take a look and see what you think.
Maybe some day this or other worthy gardening shows will again show up on our local television station schedule. Until then, thank goodness for the Internet!
