I am so disappointed with Gardeners' World, it now makes my heart sink rather than fill it with half an hour of joy. Monty may be in touch with the soil, but he's not down to earth! His new greenhouse with attached coldframes has a larger footprint than many people's gardens and his potting shed is roomier than most people's front rooms. His potting shed walls are adorned with numerous gardening implements, but just how many polished trowels does one man need? Many new gardeners on a budget would be grateful of just one of those shiny trowels? He and his Chelsea designer chums are alienating a large part of the gardening nation ... it's not really Gardeners' World anymore.
