It really puzzles me when people complain about the size of a garden when the feature was about hellebores - what the heck has the size of someone's garden (or bank balance for that matter) got to do with it? That's the great thing about gardening - it's a great leveller - you either know your stuff or you don't - if you're not prepared to learn you'll never be a gardener. The woman who was breeding hellebores obviously knew what she was talking about and had bred some beautiful plants and could speak well about them.
Or is it only the efforts of 'horny handed sons of toil' that are valued?
My garden is tiny compared with many, but I grow hellebores and enjoyed watching the feature and learned a lot from it .... should I have not watched it as not being suitable for my small garden and a pensioner's income
I really don't think we can expect one half hour programme a week to take on the task of changing the social strata of the UK - that's something that's been tried and has failed before and will probably take a bit longer and even more effort - but the 7th of May is coming folks
