Joyce I imagine it would start week 1 with twelve competitors who would have three challenges to do, depending on the season. The one who scored least points would leave and one person would be the star gardener for that week.Week two would have three different challenges and so on till only three finalists were left. In the final they could be challenged to design and plant up a small garden for Chelsea and judged by the RHS standards. The challenges could range from weeding , pruning, designing, propagating, all the things we have to do every day. As for resting I was told at the age of three i had to take responsibility for my little brother who had learning difficulties and got out of bed every morning ready for my "Job". This has never left me. Those that know me well are used to it. i remember when my parents visited once when I had just had my sixth baby in nine years and my mother asking my husband if I ever sat down. He just answered simply "No". I just laughed at her question as I had three extra people to feed for their fortnight's holiday! A bit like you suggesting I go in for a gardening Bake-off program when I am stretched to the limit with a huge garden and house to care for and share with friends and family.
