Short post (on a train again) but had to shout WELCOME BACK POTTY . We've missed you ! Don't worry about catching up, just throw yourself straight back in. So glad you are enjoying work (it was Fairy asking before, not me). Hope you are gearing yourself up for the defence of your "best garden" crown . - you need to retain it for your new granddaughter - although i'm sure she'll grow up thinking you are the best anyway. Will there be poppies in your pots this year to celebrate ?

TV gardening programmes

Just to remind those who were interested, there is a new show on great gardens (Dixter, Sissinghurst et al) on BBC4 tomorrow night (tues) at 9pm.  I've just set the planner

Also Beechgrove is also back on bbc2 on Sunday morning (for those in England - think its Thursday night in Scotland).

and the Great Allotment Challenge is the following Tues at 8pm ..... Not sure if gardening really lends itself to the knockout show/reality tv format .... But i'll give it a go 

So a feast of small screen garden stuff 

next season

Dove - your pond looks fantastic, and already looks like it has always been there.  You carry on sitting and staring in to it - more entertaining than half the stuff on telly at the moment

What a gorgeous garden punkdoc - i have just spent a happy 10 minutes browsing round it.  Is the stream in the pictures the one that nearly flooded earlier in the year?  And what are the purple tipped pink flowers in pic 14?  Really unusual.

Artjak and break23 - i can get to Worthing without too much trouble (i am near Guildford) - all of my contributions are growing from seed, so will not be ready for transporting til late May/ early June - but i will keep watching this thread and will make contact nearer the time.
