Is there any coverage of the show on the "Red Button" this year? Haven't seen it mentioned anywhere & it seemed to be the only way to get a real look at the Floral Marquee. I get fed up of the constant coverage of the big show gardens
Oh, for a garden with curves ! it seems to be straight lines all over the place.
I seem to recall Alan Titchmarsh saying something similar last year.
I've just caught up with the last couple of episodes and agree that Monty comes across as much more empathetic. I'm sure I read somewhere that he asked the producers to find people who were prepared to get more stuck in than those on the first series - I recall there were a few who didn't make the progress he'd expected them to.
Do you know anyone who has a "night vision" camera you could borrow ? We have one from Aldi for watching our hedgehogs ( & cats, foxes etc!).
Already signed - see the total is heading towards 24,000 .
Love hedgehogs, we have them in the garden & I think one is hibernating in our hedgehog house, but don't like to disturb him/her.
I enjoyed the item about the Salutation garden - it looked so beautiful. All those dahlias! Off to the garden centre this week for some tubers .
I loved Nigel & Nellie, but was so distracted by them, I had to keep "rewinding" to pay attention to Monty !
I would like to know this as well ! My husband cut the stem with the seed pods off & I have hung it up in my greenhouse to dry them out.I've no idea if this will work or if it's the right thing to do .If it's successful, when do I sow them & how long should I expect germination to take?
Will do !!
Thanks Fairygirl. I didn't think they'd get this far to be honest, so I'd hate to lose them ! I think you're right, cold frame is the way to go
I dug out some tiny seedlings from the cracks in my patio and they have grown on really well, They are now between 4" & 6" high & in 3" pots.
Trouble is I am not sure what to do next - do I plant them out in the autumn or leave them to overwinter in a cold frame? If I do leave them in a cold frame, should I pot them on into bigger pots or leave them as they are?
Advice much appreciated
