On this weeks Gardeners world, 26 07 13, we were informed that readers had written in about "Disgusting maggots". I think the writers in question should have been advised with strong emphasis that these would eventually become Hoverflies. These are commonly known as drone flies and like all hoverflies are beneficial to the gardener. How many have been fished out and discarded by Monty Don and others ? I dont know what he did with the maggots but if he somehow rescued them, then he has redeemed himself. Perhaps he should consult Chris Packham before the programme is made. To me, the insects that inhabit my garden are as interesting as my plants. I make the effort to learn about them. With the availability of information via the internet, if you have it, it is so easy.
The other side of Monty Don.
