I take my hat of to you sir/madam ??

The photo's are outstanding & I have NO trouble in seeing the beauty & workmanship / skill in producing the gardens / displays like I said previously Birmingham councils was exceptional. But why does South Africa have a garden ( I guess you may tell me that the R.H.S is a worldwide organisation )(If so why not Australia/Canada/India ect ect )(I have a feeling you are going to tell me All in previous years)

All the plant producers displays must have been a wonder to look at or they would not have paid the vast premiums they must be charged for having a stall at the show. The gardens that look as if they have always been there with moss on stones & the likes great( rather like Titchmarshes) But many of the others do not seem to resemble nothing one is ever likely to see again anywhere. Take that thing the other year by Durmaid Gavin high rised ??

Only had a Black & White television are you telling me she was Ginger ?(Only joking)

I found her informative & of course easy on the eye but in keeping with other television programes(apparently)she must have got replaced by someone younger with less knowledge, ( Atleast thats what several court cases were about )

I guess on some satelite channel somewhere they must be showing re runs of groundforce ??

Dont tell Frenchcafe but I suspect Monty does Not do all the gardening himself either !! Are we paying someone to sit about playing cards & drinking tea behind the scenes whilst the camera's roll ?

Its just Not good enough maybe we should all write to the Beeb & ask

Stepped out the back door early this morning to be greeted by a monster of a slug atleast 4inches long and the build of a Beef sausage. I stepped back inside reached for the salt cellar gave it a dusting and monster no more

Fair point well put

But I guess I must just be stuck in the local flower show, summer fete kind of gardening with talcum powder on your onions & marrows in wheelbarrows

Last week they said Boffins from somewhere or other had proved that if you throw snails the length of a cricket pitch ( Not the length of wicket 22yrds ) they fail to come back because their sat nav does not work over that distance.

It did not say anything about the impact caused after a throw like that may have had a greater effect rather than their faulty homing devices

I got the nurseryman / woman side of chelsea and their displays are fantastic & their dedication must be over whelming.

But why do the city of Birmingham have a display ( even though I thought it was by far the best one shown on t.v ) what have they got to gain from it ? But who see's the  show gardens & thinks " oh must get one of them " Do the designers get a tap on the shoulder from Premiership players who ask them to build them the same down the road a little bit ?

Sorry to inform you But I Dont get Chelsea !!

Yes I can appreciate all the hard work that goes into it. But why ?

I thought Monty looked scruffy in an other sized jacket that appeared to me representative of one been in the boot of the car for a few days prior to wearing.
