Talkback: Monty Don returns to Gardeners' World

Posted: 01/04/2013 at 10:08

 Good morning to you.

Very slowly at the minute. To cold to venture out a I am ashamed to say.  Here in Derby this morning there is cloud and a biting cold wind.  It will take us a while as we have a limited budget to work on hence trawling round B&Q etc for bargains. Our local Morrison shop has a small garden section with very cheap plants. All helps.

This is the small garden I was talking about. Although the gardenis small and flat they have built structures to change the levels and masses of Evergreen plants. The more clever among you may know the names. This was in the middle of a town and we were so taken with it we took this photo. January this year. Just shows that you do not need a big garden plus it must look good all year round and little maintenance.  Now that is what I call inspiring gardening

The different levels are because our garden slopes up quite a lot. Believe me it is hard work  carving out the levels. I long for a level garden.  Strange how  we all want different to what we have.

We did se a garden earlier this year that wsrealy small and flat. It was out of this world how they had done it.They had made raised strucures and planted them out with Ferns and the like all very what you might say overcrowded but the effect was stunning. We have some DVD's of I think it is Matt James. The City Gardener. All his gardens are small but all are a real treat to the eye. worth a look

We like their catalogue. Very humerus and well presented

Thanks both.     My wife dose the plants. I do the hard landscaping. Takes time though and of course cash. Trying to do things on a budget is the worst part.  We scourer the B&Q garden dept for plants at bargain prices. Some are near death but persistence brings them round. Plus we have a local Aldi and they are always having budget plants in. It is the only way we can do it. O seeds of course. We have discovered Chiltern seeds this year. They are very reasonable on prices.

Managed it. This is some time back just after I built Summer house. A lot of earth was moved.

Do I rank as a Gardener yet?  or a figure of fun.

I tried to upload a photo of the first part of our garden to show what I have done. All made possible with insperation I achieved from Alan Tichmarsh. We have lots more to do.

I am more the capable of building my own greenhouse. I certainly do not want BBC filming in my garden. I just want it to be more like most peoples expectations of a Garden. Plus he dose not always  give the correct information. That is how I see it. I just prefer other presenters.

You will note I have not made any personal attack any one else answering my post. It is only polite I can have the same in return. My garden is a darn site larger than a Pint pot. It is mainly the Paddock from when my daughter kept her horse here. W need inspirational advice not silly comments.

If that is how Monty Don fans are then maybe I am best out of it. I made a comment and all I have received is childish remarks, bad manners and degrading comments. Is that how real Gardner's are?   It is very insular the world you must lie in.

In defence when Monty Don did his series on French Gardens I found him extremely interesting and full of enthusiasm.
