well said dovefrom above.. the seasons are the smae year in year out,.. so gardening has a repetetive side to it.. sowing seeds, planting out, weeding, feeding dead heading.. pruning... it all makes a lovely garden.
i dont mind Monty and i love Carol.. thou her voice annoys me.. her enthusiam is infectious... i cant really stand rachel and tend to go make cuppa when she is on.. joe is fine i can watch him. monty's garden may be large and not all to my taste..but i learn from him everyweek.. this year he has done his pond and i have learnt about making one.. not that i have room.. but it has been enjoying to see transform from hole to lovely pond and planting.. it shows how you can do it your self..
and i am all for non chemical and i always thought the BBC werent allowed to advertise products on their programmes.. maybe i am wrong..
we have watched monty's garden grow like our own.. i have wtached it since the days of percy thrower.. geoff hamilton etc.. i will always watch it regardless..
it is not long enough programme and is only one we are given.. if they had more time more could be covered as dovefromabove said..
as i tell everyone.. if you dont like a programme there are plenty of other channels to watch or just switch off and go in the garden
