Irish broadcasters RTÉ & BBC1 Northern Ireland are starting a gardening show with garden designer & TV personality Diarmuid Gavin.
The six-part Gardening Together with Diarmuid Gavin going to follow Gavin direct from his own own garden sanctuary as he helps enthusiastic gardeners — from novices to seasoned green thumbs – by providing advice, planting suggestions & bringing in tips from horticultural experts.
The quick-turnaround show aims to reflect just how numerous citizens in Ireland have changed to gardening during this COVID-19 epidemic.
Gardening Together with Diarmuid Gavin is produced by Waddell Media, with Lee Salisbury serving as show producer.
RTÉ 1 premiered the show on Jul 17, awhile BBC1 in Northern Ireland premieres it today (Jul 20).
“The idea for this show has been born out of lock-down; not only have been citizens spending extra time in their own gardens, however it has been also a show that I understood we can movie & deliver safely in this time, making much required work (5) for our amazing tandem when so numerous different productions should be put into hiatus,” stated Jannine Waddell, managing director of Waddell Media, in an announcement.
“It’s being so rewarding to join with gardening friends to gain the nation growing again,” stated Gavin. “From city plots to rural plains, we’ve cajoled & encouraged a new band of gardeners to come together to inspire & delight.”
