I agree Forester - and I enjoyed seeing how they grow in the wild etc - apart from finding it really interesting, it reminded my of that programme the late great Geoffrey Smith did - 'Geoffrey Smith's World of Flowers' where he travelled the world in the steps of the plant-hunters, discovering the origins of so many plants we grow in our gardens - absolutely fascinating.
But do we have to keep having these discussions on which we like the best - GW or Beechgrove? They're not football teams or pop groups and we're not children in a playground - you don't have to swear life-long allegiance - you can watch both and take what you want from each - isn't that wonderful?
Enjoy the bits you like, ignore the bits you don't and get on with your gardening - bliss
