I doubt if he chooses which gardens he goes to John!
I'm not commenting on the box blight issue other than to say - any gardener who can honestly say they've never made mistakes, no matter how much experience they have, is probably telling porkies. I think it's refreshing when people hold their hand up and say - well I tried this and look what happened. As gardeners we often wing it - sow things a bit late, prune things too early, plant things in the wrong soil and the wrong location, don't get our bulbs in at the right time - the list goes on and on. It's how we learn.
No one gets it right day in day out, year after year.
And I think we expect a bit too much from a half hour of telly once a week. You can please some of the people, some of the time.....
