On monday I bought and set up my TV Converter Box so that I could be prepared when stations across the country switch to providing a digital signal. While setting it up I noticed that I was now recieving a few new stations I had not been getting before. One of the stations is Create TV, an offering from American Public Television and the programing line-up is best described as "do-it-yourself." The four year old channel has been broadcasting nationally for the past three years and shows cover: cooking, arts & crafts, home improvement , travel and even gardening.
My first experience with the channel involved a well done segment on bonsai on the show Cultivating Life hosted by Sean Conway. Other gardening shows include: Garden Smart with Joe Lamp’l and Eric Johnson, GardenStory: Inspiring Spaces, Healing Places hosted by Rebecca Frischkorn, P. Allen Smith's Garden Home, Smart Gardening and the ever popular The Victory Garden.
If you watch television shows on the internet Hulu.com has a Home & Garden channel but the closest thing there to a gardening show is Desperate Landscapes but I have caught a few plant/nature related items in the news & information section. But at least with the roll out of digital signals gardners, like myself, who want their GTV or who think HGTV is a misnomer now have options available to them that they didn't have before.
