Great British Garden Revival

Posted: 28/12/2013 at 11:36

That's kind Clueless but I now have watched all so far  and have the rest of the series on record to save. I am really enjoying the series and believe it is the best thing the bbc has done for years.

Garden girl, Thank you Thank you Thank you! I have just watched the topiary episode and am inspired. I have the rest of the series on record and feel these are programmes I will want to watch again. Thanks again for taking the time to post the link for me (and others) to enjoy.

Beautiful morning in Essex.All is calm and the sun is shining. Been for a walk in the park and now going to tackle all the twigs/branches in the garden - work off some of yesterday's excesses...

After further research it's episode 2 - the one about the topiary that I have missed. Still can't find where to watch it though!

Thanks for the tip about toptopiary I bought a fan tailed dove frame for my Mum who lives in 'Dove Cottage' for Xmas. Service was great and she is thrilled with the frame. 

I've missed an episode of Great Gardens....I think episode 3...and they are not on iplayer anymore, anyone with any idea if it is available anywhere else? Thanks.

LOL - never noticed the escapee coming around the plastic! Definitely something you don't want where it is growing at any rate...

I'm going to be on the look out for Margery Fish books about cottage gardening mentioned by Carol Klein on Great British Garden.....the other evening. They sound right up my street. I love a good gardening book or two or three!

suggestions needed please

Hi, firstly, I apologise for all  the questions I am about to ask but they will help you get a better answer and therefore (hopefully) a successful outcome. 

How much sunlight does the area get? What part of the country are you in? Is it sheltered? Do you use the drive for the car as shrubs will go out as well as up - how much width are we talking about?  How far out from the fence have you excavated? Sometimes a lot of rubbish is found at the base of a wall or fence but further out  -18" the soil might be of much greater quality and any plant would have a much better chance of survival.
