Quite right I don't like Monty Don. Nothing personal (I'd be quite happy to share a pint in the pub with him) but I don't rate is ability as a gardener and I have sufficient knowledge to know what I'm talking about.....on the other hand, I will concede he is a good communicator & presenter.
I do have this gripe at the moment about the amount of money being spent on his garden.... and probably more to the point who is paying for it and when he leaves the program, will there be any reimbursement (if applicable) to the BBC.
At the start of the series, I don't think it could have escaped anyone's notice that the place was little more than a neglected dump....I certainly wouldn't have liked to call it my garden. The contrast now is remarkable, there has obviously been large sums of money spent on structural changes & labour.
Time will tell if I'm right or wrong.
