I havn't watched the herb bit yet, mainly because OH yelled "Turn him off".
There have been quite a few errors. Carol Klein said Dove cottage was in Yorkshire, when its near Ashbourne in Derbyshire. Geoff Hamilton showed Dove cottage in his cottage garden series. It's interesting to see how it has evolved.
Jo Swift leaving stray plants on peoples doorsteps was a bit of a gimmick, I wonder how many were dead after a week.
The tree garden I thought looked more like a shrub garden. It bought to mind the old saying that in Cornwall, Trees grow like shrubs (because of the prevailing wind) and shrubs grow like trees (because of the mild climate) I assume they keep everything small by constant pruning and snipping.
I tend to prefer an effervescent blowsiness, where the plants can have their head. -Like an eruption of fireworks.When Its too big, it comes out and something else goes in the gap.
