It's a bit like watching Masterchef and complaining that I don't have a Sous Vide machine and a top of the range ice cream maker so the programme is not for me. Delia Smith has top of the range kitchens, cookware made to her own design and a team of trained chefs/cooks/researchers/writers working on her recipes.
Monty has things on the scale he does because gardening is his job and presumably it's worthwhile financially.
It's pretty obvious from looking at any gardening magazine or the shelves of the garden centre that smaller/cheaper versions are available.
Monty was honest, showing us what he uses and explaining how it helps. Those of us with the knowledge and skills can work out how to make our own - I've a feeling that current Health & Safety would do more than raise an eyebrow at a tv programme that suggested that the ordinary gardener should attempt to do that. Things were different in Geoff Hamilton's day.
