Carol Klein to present BBC Glebe Cottage series

Gardeners’ World presenter Carol Klein will present a six-part BBC2 series in January.

TV gardener Carol Klein

Carol’s Year at Glebe Cottage has been filming since January and will be complete in December.

She said: “The series is about what happens in my garden over a year. You don’t have to have a garden like mine to identify with the programme.”

The programme will feature time-lapse sequences to show plants growing over the year.

But Channel 4 has pulled the plug on the second series of Matthew Wilson’s Landscape Man

It will not return to Channel 4 in spring, despite the second series being half way through filming.

Matthew said: “TV is a funny place. I’m developing other ideas.”

    About time we saw more of Carol Klein, she’s been sidelined for far too long. Her programme in December was great, and her own garden series is off to a brilliant start.
    More grown up programmes like this please. Perhaps other gardening ‘shows’ could be on BBC 1 so that we all gain from quality progammes.

    A wonderful relaxing trip through the year in her garden. Her discriptions were as vibrant as the plants. The no frills way of achieving a great garden came through with all the tips on propergation,pruning etc. Good basic gardening at its best. Carol certainly doesnt mind getting her hands dirty and at one with nature, unlike alot of female presenters. Well done Carol,wish you would take over gardeners world, and show them what gardenings about,hope to see more of you on tv.

    This was a wonderful series, is it going to be put on DVD? (hope so), if not then at least treat us gardeners to a repeat the series, theres a long gap from oct/nov to march when the gardening progs start again, it is far better than some of the rubbish thats repeated.
    By the way, those cute little dogs are Lakeland Terriers, so sweet…ar

    Fleur is a Welsh Terrier or I’ll eat my hat. :-)
    We had one for 15 years and everyone said he was just like a teddy bear.
    Well done for saving her and Fifi is beautiful too.
