This has been such a great series and well presented by Monty Don and his colleagues.  So many good tips and interesting visits. Lovely to see Nigel too.  He's definitely a star!

18/08/2012 at 18:08

Nigel is definately a star,  l love him.

Yes, I am really enjoying this series of GW and do agree that Nigel is definately the star of the show.  Our westie sits and watches GW with me on the sofa and as soon as Nigel appears he runs at the TV, he can also hear the birds etc.

Loved the garden they showed last night in Richmond,  North Yorkshire it was absolutely beautiful.

I'm really enjoying it too. I wish it was an hour, or on twice a week.

NIgel is much leaner & lither than all the golden retrievers I know, I wonder if he is one, or something else? He's lovely.

Hear,hear,best series so far........I ONLY watch for Nigel, MD is a bonus! Would be good if it could be extended to an hour......that WOULD be a treat, more sitings of Nigel eh?

20/08/2012 at 16:04

Yes, loving it as well.

I like Nigel...shame about his dad!

love nigel too.. he is a rogue.. thou was kinda hoping monty would fall in the pond.. and nigel jump in after him

can anyone tell me what the tall white flowered plant was either side of monty when he walked in through the arch way near beginning of programme please.

I didn't know Monty's dog was called Nigel. Golden Retrievers are such a delight, an outstanding nature, delightful looks as well. I have had five over the years. Mine has just starting picking and eating runner beans from the pots. Annoying, but I will refrain from telling her off!

Which is why I bracketed 'again'.   and I had the pleasure of seeing it.

I think "gardeningfantic" and David K" are well out of order, picking like that on Nigels' dad. Wait till he hears about this........WOOF, WOOF!!

But I like you both as you make me smile, Beeba.

Great to see that others are enjoying this series so much.  A longer programme would be brilliant but of course, it takes time to put it all together.  It would be good to have an occasional programme during the winter too.  There's always something to talk about and to look at.  I'm sure Nigel wouldn't mind the cold on occasions!  Doesn't everyone agree?

28/08/2012 at 15:37

yes, love the new series.I like montys garden( and nigel ) it seems to be off on much better footing and format.

28/08/2012 at 16:15

Yes I agree it would be good to have a few GW in the winter.  When the weather is cold and wet and us gardeners cannot get outside it would be good to be able to sit down and watch a gardening programme.  Even showing a few repeats would be good, maybe some from the days of  Geoff Hamilton and Alan Titchmarsh.  They repeat everything else so why not GW. 

 

28/08/2012 at 16:51

Oh yes it would be amazing to see old ones in the winter. I remember the end of the Alan Titchmarsh ones & loved them. 

Geoff Hamilton would be great too as he was before my gardening times.
