Can i just add a few words here on how much i enjoyed Monty's talk on his garden and love of it.. it was a packed out show and it was awesome.. to hear him talk of his love and how his garden has grown from meadows/fields to what it is now.. the ups and downs. wonderful i was entralled all evening.. to see private parts of the garden that the show does not go in..

The questions and answers afterwards were wonderful. and the meet and greet also.. i got my book signed and was able to have a few words. thank u Monty for making me realise i am not mad to love my gardening  as i do.. it is my family who are mad not to love it also..

The only thing was NIgel was not there to all of ours dissapointment.. but wre told fame had gone to his head. adn he got more fan male than Monty did lol.. a wonderful evening to talk ... laughter enlightenment.. thank u Monty xxx

@obelixx. exactly.. it doe not seem to have much gardenin back bone this year.. carol has been out visitng all time.. hardly any time in her garden this year.. and monty has not shown much at all.. one week it sad show how to take cuttings from fuschia.. but he didnt show it and i have not seen it at all on any others,

something has to change in the show.. it is only 30mins long as it is so to waste it going round seeing peoples gardens  with loads of money and space. is no good to me at all.. i want to see hwo to grow and to cope and as you say all aspects of gardening..

i must admit i bring all my small seeded plants and non hardy plants indoors to the spare bedroom.. Hubby gets annoyed with me.. but hey i just tell him "if they die i will ahve to go some replacements" and he lets it be

but i have side one on house and it keeps warm for the heat of the house also.. but i dont keep much in greenhouse except for fuschias, agapanthus, and terracota pots.

i did insulate mine one year with bubble wrap.. hubby not impressed with that job.. ut to be honst it go so much condensation.. it was worse that no insulating and my plants died.. so i dont bother anymore..
