Reading the comments above has prompted me to write this, I was new to this forum and I was foolish enough to respond to a comment made by Dovefromabove.It was taken the wrong way by him/her and posted a very sarcastic remark back. I found this very hurtful and stopped going on the forum for a while. After some thought, I decided that I was depriving myself because of ONE forum member and  there are alot of VERY KIND and polite other members who have given me good advice. I also felt that I had the option not to read or response to this persons' postings or blocking.

I an pleased that I had the courage to carry on with the forum as I enjoy reading the comments and most of the forum members are VERY, VERY sensitive to others, especially novices like me.

To you I say a big THANK YOU and and what a pleasure it is to read your postings

It,s a good programme for me as it has basic info and the winter flowering plants feature gave me an idea with the dogwood combination. It is not tooooo taxing as I feel a "heavy" taxing programme would need to be longer. It is good for giving us ideas.

I do find Joe boring and Carol is to enthusiastic!!

Yes, the chickens make me smile as they seem to steal the limelight from Nigel without meaning to do so! Monty is so self effacing and down to earth and reminds me  to do  boring stuff that I have forgotten to do

I have been watching Beechgrove and it is on the same lines except that it has more trials on Composts etc. which is useful. Some stuff is OK for us living down south, but mostly it caters for the colder areas up north. IT starts on the 4th of April @ 7.30 hrs. nationwide on BBC 2. Enjoy

I grow them every year and the perfume is so intoxitating, but I have had no luck in trying to over winter them and have to get fresh bulbs every year.

This made me spill my tea over the keyboard!

 If we carry on at this rate......killing other living things that we don't like we will reach a stage when we will start killing each and there will be nobody left. There are so many sad  things happening in our world and killing seems to be the answer to every thing.

Money seems to give us immense power, and in the wrong hands it is being used with impunity.

OMG Lead Farmer, your garden is so beautiful.........I am indeed happy to have found GW Forum. There are some stunning gardens, lovingly tendered by some of you. Mine is nowhere near yours........thank God that you post your pictures as I really do enjoy them.

I grow a few clematis and have found that like all flowers,  the single ones seem to attract the most insects. One good variety that is easy to grow too, is "Viticella". There are lots of colours and a profusion of flowers that last ages. Added bonus is that it rarely scums to wilt. Have fun looking it up on Google.

Aaaaa........I had my first fix of Nigel for this year.Must be spring at last, although down here in Surrey it has been wet since Tuesday!

Never mind the chickens,it was heartening to see Nigel(Monty didn't look too bad either) romping around , trying to imitate the chicken! Nice gentle gardening for the first programme of the year.

I am looking forward to Beechgrove too, I'd better get my act together and sow some comes spring, enjoy

I could write a book about the trashy service of T&M but the gardening magazines/dailies etc.seam to pay no attention to the consumers' complaints as they are reaping revenue from T&M.

No one has cottoned on to the fact either, that these FREE plants are surplus that would be thrown out(judging by the quality of plants they sent out) and the P&P they want is exorbitant! Also, often wrong plants are sent out and willy nilly as if they are doing customers a favour by using the word "FREE".

There are MORE complaints than satisfied customers  over all. They are taking advantage of the belief that we do not complain. They would not get away with it in the continent.

oooooh Verdun,Verdun, how could about hiding your talent under a bushel. I am speechless. I have read your comments on the forum and built an imaginary picture of a lovely gentleman, a very keen gardener whose greatest pleasure in life is your garden(like a lot of folk I know). Your comments have always been so encouraging and sensitive(without making novice gardeners like me feel so inadiquate) But, but what a dark horse you are fancy keeping such a beautiful, beautiful garden hidden away. I think like me, all us novices should demand (please, please), for regular pictures of your paradise at least once a week!! Thank you for sharing some of it with us all.
