GIMA seeks Love Your Garden feedback for Titchmarsh meeting as episode six suppliers revealed

Below is the list of items for the last in the current series to be screened on Tuesday 31 July at 8.00pm on ITV1.

Episode six of Love Your Garden shows Greenfingers creating a memorial garden for a children's hospice.
The main feature was a dry river bed created using Caledonia pebbles and large boulders sourced from a nearby limestone quarry.

GIMA has a meeting with Love Your Garden producers Spun Gold and Alan Titchmarsh this autumn and is gathering trade opinion on the second series, how it compares to the first series, timing content and style and what they think would help improve it as a programme and what needs doing to drive more business into retailers via a third series in 2013.
