Absolutely agree Gemma - so much good stuff from Geoff Hamilton, and all still available in books and on DVD and YouTube - I have some of them - so another presenter needs to do something else - imagine the fuss if someone came along and showed us how to make a hypertufa trough ... again! And I've just watched a video of GH tieing up the leaves of cardoons - how I'd love to have the space to grow cardoons, but I don't and that's that. I don't hold it against GH that he's showing me something that I can't do any more than I'm more than a tiny bit envious of the large wildlife pond that Monty has when I only have a small one.
You never know, if I'd turned that 9 acre smallholding I had into a wonderful garden instead of growing hay and milking goats I might just be the presenter of GW now - but I'm not and I really don't see any point in being miffed about it.
MD will not be the presenter of GW for ever - I'm sure he has other things he wants to do - and I don't suppose the person who steps into his gardening boots will be able to please all the people all of the time either
