Have only ever watched Beechgrove once ...... and haven't since - hated every minute of it. Won't even watch when there's nothing else on. Still it takes all kinds 


Just goes to show what a diverse lot we are......as you say 'it takes all kinds', wouldn't it be boring if it were otherwise.

For me, I judge a gardening program by the accuracy of advice being given and its relevance to the viewers it's aimed at. I feel that in that respect (and others) Beechgrove ticks all the boxes, for both experienced and new gardeners.

David K: Have you not watched it? Catch up on iplayer. It was packed full of information Jim said you should only sharpen one side of the blade of his tool. Couldn't quite catch which side it was or it doesn't matter which side to sharpen.. 

That would be Beechgove, of course?

Never miss it and rate it highly........well worth the praise it receives.

Btw, I have been known to sharpen the odd garden tool meself in me time.....it's the upper edge that needs to be sharp, the bottom edge should be flat - as with a wood-chisel.

Shirley...don't think the 'smiley image' and lack of notification emails are connected.

I suspect you need to go into settings and see if you have 'basic editor' or 'advanced editor' highlighted in the 'forum settings' section. 'advanced editor' will give a more comprehensive toolbar.

 Thinking about the above magnolia, this happened to my lovely camellia 'Water Lily' last year.....totally ruined it.
