I enjoyed the first programme in the series. We have been to Diane du Poitiers garden, don't know how to spell the name of the garden, it was better in real life than on the tv. Not a style I particularly like but you have just got to admire the grandeur and scale. I am looking forward to this weeks show. We have also been to Villandry, it's wonderful, the way they use vegetables in amongst the flowers, formal, but it works.
Monty does it for me. I think his garden at Long Meadow is influenced by the French garden style. He likes tall clipped hedges and lots of box. Not my cup of tea, but gardens should be about what you enjoy seeing and growing. Everyone is different.
