YES - Andrew Maxted, commerical director, HTA
"I thought it was excellent. The BBC has managed to totally refresh a format that is very well established, keeping all the remaining features and with lots of new bits coming through.
"Gardeners' World has a new field in Birmingham and it's encouraging - after using established gardens - to be able to be brave enough to go to a site that's totally greenfield.
"For the new presenting team, as Toby Buckland said, it's a fantastic platform."
NO - Neil Gow, director, Garden Industry Manufacturers' Association
"Watch David Domoney on This Morning. He knows what he's talking about. He talks about what products to use. To educate and inform, you have to recommend specific products.
"I don't watch because it makes my blood boil if I do. I can't see the difference between reviewing new products for gardens and Top Gear reviewing the latest Lamborghini.
"Gardeners' World asked me to do some research on top-selling spades but when I named specific spades, they bailed out."
NO - Anne Wareham, gardener, writer and broadcaster
"Bit boring, isn't it? I'm afraid I skipped bits. Why do they giggle all the time? Being very jolly, I suppose, to cheer us up.
"I see that design involves buying pots of things and sticking them in at random, which results in the unfortunate gardens we saw on the show and all over the UK.
"If they have to teach so relentlessly, why not teach that design is more than sticking lots of different, unrelated plants in chaotically, planting two trees symmetrically (wow) and dividing your empty field up into odd shapes?
"No, it's not that easy, actually."
YES - Robin Templar Williams, managing director, Roblin Williams & Associates Landscape & Garden Designers
"The positives are that there is a good line-up, the presenters are down to earth and know what they are doing, and the content is very good.
"I like the fact that the people on the show seem very passionate and knowledgeable about what they are doing and it will be nice to see a new site being developed.
"However, it did seem a little stage-set and contrived with their well-rehearsed lines. But, overall, it is good and the educational elements are useful."
