No No No. It’s Gardener’s World, not Bickering-r-us

Gardener’s World is back, 2/23 my Sky+ informs me, which is a brilliant feeling – 23 weeks of warm-ish weather for all.

But wait, Toby Buckland and Alys Fowler have started a worrying new mock fighting angle between the radishes and roses, and it’s manure.

I can put up with a lot of disfunctional personality from my garden presenters, but this almost sibling-like “I’ve had to clean up twice” lark is going too far. Monty and Carol would never scrap in this faux-cutesy style, it’s just not good. I don’t mind some stilted conversation in the borders (could do with less of Joe Swift impersonating Jamie Oliver though), but thinking about it now, even last season Toby B’s roll your eyes/groan/ugh humour was there to see, but Alys still had some dignity. Maybe the new garden was the last straw, or no, I think it’s the Hot or Not board.

Perhaps Toby and Alys actually hate each other? 21 weeks to find out I guess. Can’t we have Carol for lead presenter?
