Agree absolutely - well done BBC powers that be
Maybe we should express our appreciation to the BBC - they won't look at this forum.
GW was enjoyable last night.
Love your garden though is excellent. Ok,,it's flawed......shoving hundreds of plants in knowing many will not survive ......but a lovely sentimental, caring programme based on gardenIng. Corny? Perhaps. But titchmarsh at his best. And his team just as impressive. Lovely
I thought the design of the garden on Love your Garden, was excellent. I wonder if they get a professional designer in now. But the cost was horrendous - a bit OTT I think.
"things to remember before you harvest potatoes, they must have flowered".....erm
Well, they can be harvested whenever one chooses, of course, but I have found that piece of advice to be correct.
just had a thought. Few and far between, so it made me reflect a minute. Here in Ireland we are really particular about our potatoes, and they must be as dry and floury as possible when cooked. With smiling skins, I.e split skins. The term "waxy" is a terrible insult. I'm not joking here. We don't like the look, feel or taste of waxy potatoes, even for potato salad! So, we leave them in the ground until they have flowered and the foliage dies down naturally.
anybody like to come in on this?
