I have signed countless NDAs in my life. For those not au fait with this particular TLA (Three Letter Acronym - possibly the most useless TLA ever invented) it stands for Non Disclosure Agreement. Almost all of these arose in my dark days as a technology PR girl and generally had to do with something so dull and incomprehensible that disclosing it would have been social suicide anyway.
However, last year I signed an NDA which has been torturous to keep. Nine months ago I became Gardening Consultant for a new Cbeebies show - Mr Bloom's Nursery. And, two weeks today, the first show will air.
The show has some hands on gardening with kids on a ridiculously gorgeous looking allotment with Mr Bloom. But, this is also about entertainment, so there are talking vegetables: a shy cabbage, mischievous radishes, the requisite comedy runner bean and, of course, a singing aubergine (who is also French because, hey, why wouldn't he be?).
It begins February 7th on Cbeebies 10.05am and 2.05pm.
