Judy Lowe, who blogs for the Christian Science Monitor, takes up the issue of gardening shows on HGTV, commenting
maybe the solution isn’t trying to get national TV to cover more gardening, but to encourage regional programs that can produce what the people of its area really want and need.
Lowe also links to many of us who recently ranted on the subject (and we love to see other blogs ranting). But I was interested in her idea of sticking to regional approaches. If only. In Buffalo, we have about five minutes a week on TV given to gardening in local guru Sally Cunningham’s segment on the CBS affiliate here. Big whup, as they say. Programming priorities tend to be even more harshly and narrowly defined according to lowest common denominators at the local level, though I wonder if a longer cable access show might be possible. Do any of you have great regional programs on gardening?Posted by Elizabeth Licata on September 17, 2008 at 11:00 am, in the category I Don't Have a Garden, but I Watch One on TV, Ministry of Controversy.
