At Holker garden festival on Friday i had a chat with Christine she was charming and very down to earth.

she is filming a new program at the moment and if all goes well it will be shown later this year

How lucky to chat to Christine - she comes over as a straightforward no nonsense person.

02/06/2014 at 13:55

I read she had a new series, great, any gardening programme good news!

I would like to see more of her. As well as coming over well, I gather she is very well educated (gardening wise) and not just an amateur who has picked it up along the way, as it were.

Before anyone jumps in, I dont have a problem with amateurs, some have a great deal of knowledge.

Charles Darwin was an amateur naturalist, and look what he did for increasing the scientific knowledge level.

Actually had heard of another new. Programme with month, big dreams small spaces, that is so me! Huge ideas, tiny spaces,Why didn't they ask us? I' d particularly enjoy seeing lovely , mild mannered Monty fend off my 3 year old as she shouted ' GO AWAY OR I'LL THROW YOU IN THE DUSTBInYOU CAN'T TALK TO MY MUMMY' !!!

Knows her stuff.  Maybe not so good on the eye as some of the ex model presenters but far more interesting and knowledgeable.

She has a real smile and twinkly eyes - far more attractive than 'ex model presenters' IMHO 

02/06/2014 at 15:19

I love her voice! it's always distinct on the radio, and oozes enthusiasm with down to earth humour.

Great gardener with a lot of knowledge and a down to earth manner. I will look forward to watching the series.

I bet she'd be a fantastic dinner guest - she looks as if she'd be brilliant company

The mind boggles!

Remember 'Christine's Garden' when she used swallow apple pies whole, from her neighbour Reg?....That's after she had scoffed half of the tomatoes from his greenhouse, plums from his trees & carrots from his garden.

Hence my saying 'Just don't leave your cake lying around!'
