Where’s the G in HGTV?

As I started looking into this question, I quickly saw that it is a common topic/rant among (specifically) garden bloggers. Sure, HGTV stands for Home and Garden Television and in fact, the original name for the network was Home, Lawn, and Garden Channel but anyone who watches the network regularly knows gardening shows are long gone.

The good news is that as I put together the following list of garden shows (which I expanded to include landscaping) I discovered that many of them are available in full or part on HGTV.com, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc.

Do you miss garden shows? Which ones would you bring back? Would you watch new garden and landscape programming?

One thought on “Where’s the G in HGTV?

  1. I loved The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie, The City Gardener, and Yard Crashers. I really enjoyed shows that transformed small outdoor spaces! I am disappointed that the G is disappearing from HGTV!!!
