Good to have Gardeners World back and to see Nigel fit and well. Wonder if Monty has got much gardening done so far this week because I know I haven't And 2-3 feet of hardcore for a path, he must be expecting some heavy traffic?

 

Bunny ...
Wonder how old Nigel is

We can't get scaffold boards here so when we renewed our raised beds recently we bought roofing beams which are good and solid and long enough to cut to the various lenths needed for our veggie patch.   I showed monty's double depth beds to Monty and said that was what i'd like to do when I creae a new, sunnier veg patch and he humphed.

Hi Bunny... I don't care how old Nigel is to me he is a baby......... that lights up Montys' face when he talks to him. He completes Montys' garden. Besides, he makes me smile! I noticed that the producers have cottoned on to the fact that finishing GW with them together is a plus

big sigh of delight from me,  been waiting for it to come back on,tivo it and watch with baby asleep on my knee,aahhh...wonder if monty would like to come and help me create our garden?...

@Bunny - Monty Don on twiter said Nigel was 4 years old.

I think I recall Monty saying he was going down so deep to ensure good drainage - that garden of his does flood badly doesn't it?

A programme, like radio 4's Question Time, would be nice on tv. Two, three or so experts in discussion interspersed with answers to sent in questions. I would love that. Come on tv producers, there must be one or two of you visiting this forum and realising the demand!

That sounds a great idea Verdun, with pictures of the plants and their problems and film of how to do things to illustrate people's questions.

What a great idea! It would be cheap to do and fascinating to see the subtleties of humour and response that come with facial expressions and gestures. I'd love it, too.

Bunny ...
What was that programme where people took plants along and asked experts ? ,....

Bunny, it was Antiques Roadshow. And they weren't plants, they were antiques.

Recording on Sunday ....

Jatnikapyar ... I ask because same playfulness as my 2 1/2 yr old black lab , I'm delivered toys into my plants /compost/pots/gloves stolen too paws standing on plants in excitement to say hello

I watched tonights show and have to say it was boring, splitting a perennial, sowing sweet peas and planting a bare root rose have all been done before and were better explained and presented by previous hosts, Joe's current design section is a waste of time gold medal winner or not and Carol is just too smiley and happy to be true, The producers are trying to make Monty more likeable by playing on our love of animals hence the increasing presence of Nigel and the programme is becoming old hat. Come on BBC lets have some new blood with some new refreshing ideas and presentation style, In my opinion Toby and Alys would be a very welcome return given the poor start to this season so far.
