Sorry to dash your hopes, Amy, but you're a decade too late.
Here in the UK we've already had our fill of TV garden presenters who
cultivate sexual ambiguity. There was the two-pronged appeal of butch
and braless beerswilling one-of-the-guys-gal Charlie Dimmock. Plus her
side-kick Tommy the handyman, 6ft of scowling muscle in tiny tight
white shorts and bondage-strap webbing tool belt. Bob Flowerdew with a
waist-length blond hair plait, who talks a great deal about rubber, and
doubleskin polytunnels . Camp, limp-wristed, flowing silk-shirt Lawrence
Llewellyn Bowen, a sultry pouter with bigger hair than Joan Collins and
only slightly less mascara..and his sidekick bit of rough, Diarmuid
Gavin. (All of them in longterm hetero partnerships IRL).

I miss Ground Force with Alan Titchmarsh, it just worked all the way around.
But I do regularly import Titchmarsh's novels; I adore them. Never really
enjoyed just Charlie and Tommy - some of the charm went away. Still did A+
Who did the gardens with all the concrete and steel...used to make me crazy.
A friend called them the Goth gardener - he struck me as very dark.
Haven't seen the others on BBCAmerica, but have seen LLB on decorating
shows. No thanks. BTW, don't give a rats a** about their private lives.
