Factsheets

Each year we produce a series of weekly factsheets that follow each new programme. Every factsheet adds extra layers of information to the content of the programme itself. It’s a growing thing.

We also have seasonal factsheets sponsored by the RHS. You'll find a link on each factsheet to access this.

We can notify you direct by email as each factsheet becomes available. Sign up here to have your name added to our mailing list and we will send you a link when we publish each new factsheet.
