This is an observation rather than a criticism,,, I do feel that to present a prestige show like Chelsea dressed like someone who had just crawled out of a compost heap, was unacceptable. However, it was probably borne out his eccentricity rather than any intent to offend.

I've had this one complete with a working pump for a long time, just as water feature. I have to say I've never considered it as a pond, so I'll watch this thread with interest.

Ah....not from me, Dove and it would be a brave person who would challenge her knowledge of her subject.

IMHO Carol Klein should have got the job, then these debates would have been less frequent...... I'm still amazed how such an intelligent section of us can be fooled with all this hand gesturing and glib talk.

I suppose I should stay away from the ever occurring Monty Don debates, because I usually get myself ill thought of……..However, this is my take on it.

Television is a very powerful medium (witness the hordes of people amassing around these so called ‘celebs’ when they appear in public) and these people have a duty to know their subject. Why? Because misinformation can have repercussions on people for whom this is their livelihood, not just a hobby.

I give as an example Monty’s declaration a while ago that Spencer sweet peas are not worth growing as they have no scent……this is quite untrue and ridiculous. I do happen to know that it had an adverse affect on sales (I think they call it the Delia affect) and sweet pea specialist growers were furious.

I would also put Christine Walkden in the above category.  

 So it's a bit ironic that you should like him SweetPea93!
