Just when interest in gardening is growing, HGTV – the home and garden network – flips viewers a brown thumb.
I protest HGTV’s cancellation of Gardening By the Yard, and I’m disappointed in the overall decline in gardening-focused shows on HGTV.
This viewer is sticking out her green-thumb to hitch a ride with other networks. HGTV’s move to landscape make-over shows simply doesn’t make it.
