Shame that people have to find negatives in everything, there will be a lot of young people with little garden knowledge that will find Carol's section very helpful.

I dont understand the problem Nigel the dog either, many gardeners have dogs and its hardly the Monty and Nigel show.


Well said.  I have no problems watching Nigel.  I really enjoy GW.  I do agree that it's not long enough though.  I think everyone will have differing views as we are all at different stages of our gardening lives/experience.  It would be great if the BBC would consider a wider span of gardening programmes and then hopefully everyone will be happy.

Some good points from everyone re GW. I love it and never miss a show. I love Carol as she's so full of enthusiasm and no matter whos presenting its the gardening info I'm interested in. I find Monty ok. I'm too young to even know who Geoff Hamilton is! Alan T is good, but on love your garden he rarely gets his hands dirty. Beechgrove is full of useful info too. But I have to say there's much to be said for experience on your own allotment/garden and the people around you. It's more relevant to your area and locality.

Stargazelily it's called 'Harvington Pewter' from Harvington Hellebores. Description on label is as follows, Superb pewter coloured leaves all year round with red tinged flowers and stems in late winter.

Only bought it last week so looking forward to when it does flower.

Fab work artjak.

 a couple of shots of my garden. OH and son took all the log roll up from round the edge of the borders as it was rotten. So they need attention. Have cut back the passion flower and trimmed the two shrubs at the end. Can't wait to reshape the borders.

Fab read. Glad you seem to be winning the battle .

I must admit I've had a similar battle with an inherited allotment plot whose previous invaders just sat on their laurels and let the weeds rule. Back and hands sore, but progress has been good.
