I'm not criticising box hedges, I can admire them from afar. I just think about the amount of clipping cos I'm a lazy pig at heart.

Well done, Lilly pilly.

I love the relaxed look of your buttercup meadow, Nut.

Sam, personally I hate box hedging, too formal for me, and I'd rip it out, but I know others will love it. You could do something like Monty Dons Jewel Garden in there.  I'd start by clearing it and planting annuals to fill it up until you are sure it is weed free. Then spend money on choice perennials.

I thought that was what the millenium seed bank was for, punkdoc.I have to say the building at Kew is a lot prettier.

I didn't like the slavery garden either.  I want to relax, not be preached at.

I agree all art is subjective. I tend to like impressionist, but generally dont' like unmade beds, piles of bricks, and other stuff where basically someone is just having a laugh. Emperors new clothes and all that.

Mine are only just showing growth. They are in the greenhouse in a pot. A bit of warmth would get them going a bit faster.

The repeated bits are a bit much. yesterday the exmoor back story was repeated, today the Jordan back story about how cloth is woven. More gardens please. A tour of stands of  garden sculpture wuldn't go amiss either.

Courgettes - anyone put theirs out yet?

Not up here in the East Mids. All tucked up in the poytunnel.

any idea on what plant this is?

Yes, I would. In the summer if it is in a big pot, you can water well every other day, but let it drain out. Do not let it stand in water. Keep it only just damp in winter.
