Very well GWRS as I hope you are. Dry again this morning but we had a fare bit of rain yesterday which should have benefited the garden and perhaps nothing will need watering today. on with the autumnal jobs. I found the Gardeners World program on Friday much more satisfying at an hour long The container garden contribution seemed a bit too pricey for us ordinary folk though. I think there should be more emphasis on low budget gardening now austerity measures are hitting a lot of people hard financially. If gardening is worthy of being an Olympic sport, surely it must be affordable for everyone. I was born to one of the poorest families in Scotland as my grandmother was widowed with 12 children aged 13 to six weeks long before the welfare state was even dreamed of but still learned to swim at school and play hockey. Gardening for all no matter what your income is my motto.
