Think you'd be wrong David   We respect each other's point of view - we often disagree about something but have never had an argument in over 20 years

How lovely - I had a look in the woodland at Henham http://henhampark.com/visiting  the other day as I drove past but not a glimmer of blue yet.

But Dove, it is a Scottish program, that many of us soft southerners seem to have taken to our hearts....

Of course, but that's still it's Unique Selling Point and the producers and directors make the most of it

No!  That'll make them leggy and fall over.  They need more light not less.

Beechgrove somehow manages to survive and flourish on garden content..... without gimmicks.

Balls to you, Nigel! 

I always feel that is it's 'gimmick' - Northern Plain Speaking, No Frills - nothing wrong with that of course, but that is its programme style which is as considered and planned as anything on GW. 

And some people prefer that and others prefer another style.  Just like some were Beatles fans and others preferred the Stones.  And then there was the Blur/Oasis thing.  And some watch Strictly whereas others watch the dancing on ice programme whatever it's called.

Thanks Flowers

Hosta, no I didn't - was it about how they treat the cocoa bean farmers?  I've read stuff about that.  The farm shop sells Fair Trade choc
