I just posted on the other Chelsea thread, but perhaps it belongs here as you have been discussing the presentation on TV. I agree with Mrs. Garden on the page before this.
I have to admit that I always end up being rather disappointed with the TV coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show. I've seen quite a few of the programmes, but I haven't seen nearly enough of the show gardens, especially the small ones and the ones that didn't win gold medals. There is an awful lot of chat and interviewing of celebrities and growers. I want to see plants, not people! People are on all the other TV programmes
I also agree with some of you here (or was it the other thread?) that some of the planting in the show gardens, although very pretty and I like it, is very samey, similar styles, colour schemes and choice of plants.
