I was fairly unimpressed with series one when it was first shown last year, but thought I would see if there was any improvement with series two.
I waited a few days to watch the first episode of series two, watching on iPlayer, rather than live on the series’ newly promoted slot on Friday night from its previous slot on Tuesdays.
Sadly, although I thought there was improvement on series one, it’s still not the show for me. Too much about the competition element, instead of the actual growing. I don’t like the style and I don’t like the judges, particularly the thoroughly rude Thane Prince, who even when she is being complimentary seems to have a patronising and sarcastic tone.
I won’t be watching the rest of the series.

I agree – I don’t believe that flower arranging and cooking are essential allotment skills. If they had challenges to do with making stuff out of pallets or recycling stuff for use on the plot it might be a bit more realistic. I’ll probably watch it, but only because there’s nothing else on at the time, but I said that about the first series too and only watched a couple of shows!
I agree totally. This is such a waste of TV. The growing element is nothing like on a real allotment. I too believe that the focus should be more on the growing element rather than flower arranging. I don’t know that many plot holders who actually grow flowers, believing that the space is more suited to vegetables.
