Advantages: What they do to the gardens
Disadvantages: The conditions that they work in
So Ground Force probably the longest running gardening programme belonging to the BBC. Alan Titchmarsh,Charlie Dimmock and Tommy Walsh make an incredible team working in all weathers to satisfy the people of Britain they also get paid a lot. They travel up and down the country pleasing unsuspecting wives and husbands with and average budget of £500 - £1000. They do have their work cut out for them every week. The best one probably was when they were working at a Fire Station making a lovely garden remembering a dedicated Fireman. They rush to finishing it till the last minute (they have been working on it during sleet and snow whcih slowed them down a lot). Then five minutes before he was due to arrive his best friend got a phone call saying that he will be staying in Spain for tow more weeks so they did have lots more of time. I really recommend this programme to the outdoor type who are interested in gardening. So watch it and get new ideas.
