UPDATED!!! Breaking New information from a reader!!! The 1st season was such a hit that the boys were signed on to a second season. HGTV will start airing Dirty Business next Tuesday March 31, 2009 and will run 26 consecutive episodes (season 1 & 2).
Original Post starts here: Speaking of Canada Blooms, I never forgot my favourite ever garden there: an enchanting –and small — space, a deck actually. Main feature was a bathtub-fountain that spilled water over the bathtub edge onto round lake-rocks. It also had about a million white pillar candles, perched on flat limestone rocks embedded in the walls. The design was created by earth inc, a small company that unfortunately gave up exhibiting at Canada Blooms a few years ago.
Just now trying to find a picture of it I discovered that my favourite garden designers — these earth inc guys — have a landscaping show on HGTV called Dirty Business. Not the most attractive title, I’d say. It is clever, what with the business they are in. Digging in dirt is…dirty. But, speaking for me, if I’d seen the name on the TV listings I wouldn’t have thought of tuning in, or imagining that the genius minds who created that favourite garden at Canada Blooms would be behind it.
I am determined to check it out, however I’m not even sure from looking at the HGTV website whether it is still being broadcast. The date on the initial source of this info was July 2008, so who knows. If anyone has any info about it let me know. Information about the earth inc fellows and info on all the shows — except for when and if it’s still on, natch — are available on the HGTV site here.
