Willow herb or fireweed. As CB says nice native flower or weed depending on viewpoint. If you have a wild patch of garden put there as they are loved by butterflies, moths , bees etc.

More Charlie D presenting please - ponds was great as was Stumperies. IMO.

As to presenters styles and 'enthusiasm' and heavy accentuating, I agree it lacks sincerity. BBC please note. But I do like CK & Charlie D's jollity. They do also genuienly know their stuff.

Chris B likewise. More please.

Anyone else think the R De T episode on cut flowers was done by Sarah Raven a couple of years ago? Come on BBC.  Anyone else prefer to see someone else other than R De T on TV?

Same sorry story for me too when we moved into our renovated house six yrs ago - builders rubble buried all over the garden.

What to do? - well I did do the hard work in clearing it and improving my soil and now we get Silver in our local 'in Bloom' comps.

Alternatively you could make use of the poor soil and utilise it for plants that like those conditions - quite an opportunity really  - rather like the earlier suggestion of Buddleia and other wildflowers.

I enjoy Longmeadow and would love to see more shots of it. My question is - Which gardens and styles have influenced Monty the most? After all he has been in the very fortunate position to see many gardens all over the world (Excellent series by the way). Does anyone have any ideas? Will Monty reveal his biggest influences on Longmeadow? Can't wait to hear.
