Feel a bit of a fraud posting on this thread as I don't watch GW!!  However, all I wanted to say is how pleasant a thread it is in that everyone is singing the praises of Monty D. I have read threads on another forum where the poor man can't do right for doing wrong, much of it being quite personal. I think that shows what a pleasant bunch of people there are on here.

Susan, loved that article. Thanks for posting it.

Jatnikapyar, may I ask, did you post on BBC forum, as your name seems familiar?

Well, I like Nigel but then I do have 3 of my own....!  Monty is good too especially as he's got into cottage gardening which is my thing and he's chilled.  I was a big fan of Geoff H as I was only then beginning to get the gardening bug.

Hi TT, what is this "BBC forum" I am not familiar with it. but I don't think I have on it. I curious now....WHO is using my name,...I wonder!! By the way, have you been away? I have not seen your dry quibs(which make me smile) lately

without the flies and bugs in life we would have nothing.

Monty is fine, the programme is OK, but seeing the ruddy dog all the time drives me bonkers. I like dogs, and Nigel's OK, but it's a gardening programme - please - not an indulgent dog cameo-corner. Enough. Beechgrove is a gigantic garden, with a swimming pool sized 'pond' and that's fair enough despite it has little in common with the hanky patches attached to modern dolls' houses And I've also had  enough with the dead box hedge. I just wait for the 'to do' list and enjoy the pretty pictures. It's aspirational with a genial host. I quite liked his jewellery in the 80's, shame it went bust.

Have to agree Jack,all he seems to do is dig stuff up and then plant more stuff,I think we all know how to do that.And the times he mentions that bloody box hedge is doing my head in.I now record it so I can miss out the boring bits which leaves about 10 minutes worth watching.

I'm with nodlisab and Jack. Every week we see Monty pushing one his barrows around and the " dog cameos" . It's just lazy production. Fill the programme with gardening, not the same stuff every episode.
