Had a great time, weather was great. Its very similar to Chelsea with stall, show gardens etc.


Watched a good talk by Monty Don and others on career changes. Fireworks were probably the best i have ever seen. 


Traffic was bad leaving 45 mins to get out, poorly managed IMO.

Anyone got any recommendations? It's my first time at this show. I'm going to preview evening on Monday. I have also managed to get tickets to the Monty Don talk about career change but it's 1:45 long and it's only a short evening. Should I go?

Why use a seed tray

Posted: 20/05/2015 at 16:05


I just spent ages picking seedlings from a seed tray and potting onto small pots. I came to thinking why don't i just plant the damn things in the pots to start with?

Why do we do this?

Very large acer, will it travel up north and live?

I asked the RHS at Wisley about moving an Acer that I have that is around 8ft tall. I was advised that it had a less than 50% chance of survival and should probably leave it alone.
