I loved Diarmuid's skyscaper garden.. it showed really inspiration for those who live highrise.. and what they can do.. shame it is only the cameras and crew allowd up there. would love a look.

I also didnt think much of Tom Hoblyn garden..he seems to do the same italian style every year..very boring to me. i loved the the wild and free natural look of the Korean garden.. not sure on Joe's one really.. also thought the australian one was very nice too.. but my fav our the small courtyard gardens and wildlife ones.. looking forward also the new catorgory ones this year..some strange and wonderful structures on those little bits shown last night.

I absolutley loved the stand for the one with flowers ffrom Africa who are based in cornwall.. would love some of them..but wouldnt survive here..

It is all very green this year.. as they have suffered same problems as us.. not warm enough for things to flower.

I am gutted that i am not htere this year..first one missed in over 10 years.. but my Step Dad is ill and Mum wouldnt leave him.. as we normally do a stay over and do 2 days worth..

What's the weather like in your area?
