I'm an Australian and a keen gardener. Absolutely love Gardeners' World (the TV show). Especially nice to enjoy watching the lush green of English gardening.
I have one complaint, though. Would somebody please tell Monty that the Wollemi Pine is pronounced woll-em-eye, not woll-em-ee. It was discovered in the Wollemi (woll-em-eye) national park, west of Sydney, hence the name.
The name is of aboriginal origin. Some aboriginal names, ending in an i are pronounced with a soft i sound. Kurri Kurri in New South Wales, for instance, is said just like "curry curry". Bulli, a suburb of Wollongong (pronounced woollen-gong), also in NSW, is pronounced Bull-eye.
So, whilst it may be true that some say tom-ah-toes, and some say tom-ay-toes, there's only one correct option for the Wollemi PIne.
Many thanks to Monty and the team for an informative and enjoyable show.
(And by the way, in Australia, we say Tom-ah-toes)
