Football pitch programme tops Toby Buckland's wishlist

Gardeners' World presenter Toby Buckland has revealed his dream TV project is to show how groundsmen look after football pitches.

Buckland said: "I remember going to Southampton FC's ground, the Old Dell,  when they won the Premier League groundsman of the year title and had the honour of going there and kicking a football.
"I was at Arsenal at the weekend and that grass is going to take some beating. The pitch there has been good since George Graham was manager.
"I could travel round looking at how groundsmen get good pitches - from Exeter City to Manchester City."
