Ian - look out for Carol's DVD's on the internet - she is so inspiring and a proper plantswoman.

Tootles -  I love battening down the hatches too and getting cosy, but when I have to get something out of the freezer which is outside in the garage and have to get togged up like I am going mountaineering I hate it.

Some leaves take longer than others to rot Michael.

It would be interesting to see how all these featured gardens develop with a re-visit in a years time.

Not looking forward to it either Lily Pilly.  Can't look forward to a' lie in' on Sunday as cats will want feeding at their usual time till I can get them used to the new routine.

Going to the Garden Centre tomorrow (spoken in very hushed tone).  OH hates going but has agreed as I need more potting compost.  I can only tempt him by going to one that has lots of goodies to eat.  I might buy a plant or two (again spoken in a very hushed tone).

The narrator is Vicky Hall? It's not necessarily her voice which annoys me, it's more her delivery in a 'dah-di-dah-di' lilt which sounds rather childish.  It won't put me off watching tonight's programme though.

I am still enjoying this programme even though last nights ideas were a bit wacky.  We are all different and it is interesting to see what other people get up to.  The only criticism I have is the voice and delivery of the narrator which is really annoying me. Looking forward to tonight.

Re teabags - as the bags don't compost well I have a pot by the sink and throw them in there and when they reach the top slit the bags and put in tea leaves/dust in the compost. It's a bit messy but doesn't take long to do.

Just wondering why you want to split it Alan.  If it is too big just move it as the others have said after giving it a good haircut and buy another one instead of splitting it.
