Most of the names coming up are old recycled ones who have failed in the past.

 Give some one new, though not right out of college a chance for a change!

Ps Don't want to be like football clubs, where all the failed managers are in a continual merry go round of failures, and continue to fail their new club!

Out with the old and in with the new!

Someone who actually gardens normally, none of the I only garden organically nonsense, I don't use chemicals, as they gulp down their can of lager, say mix in a barrow load of leaf mould, when the most I can collect is a couple of supermarket bags full of leaves in a season,and say don't use peat as "YOU" will destroy the planet, use coir instead as it is only shipped half way around the planet!

And show something different other than sowing seeds in a seed tray and never seeing whither they germinate or not, the kids in school are taught that here,  !

Called into the plot today when I was passing as a pick me up just to have a look!

I have bark chipping on my paths, there were hellebore and lupin seedling germinating as well as some gladioli corms stems peeping through the bark,wet and frosty weather does not seem to have deterred them!

Roll on spring!

As the distinguished Indian plant biologist CS Prakash put it;

Organic farming is sustainable; it sustains poverty and malnutrition in the Third World!

The Dove is for peace and so it should be!

Religion, race, politics and sexuality are personal and should be kept that way!

This forum should be mostly be about all things gardening with a few other thrown in, such as the death of David Bowie today, no one could possibly object to this?

The things I object to are the goodie, goodie two shoes who say they are totally organic as if the rest of us are criminals, say they don't use chemicals as they scoff their can of lager, go out and bay at the moon before planting their seeds, no dig because they are too lazy to dig, say they don't use weedkiller or insecticides and then let their pests and weed seeds blow onto my allotment making my task twice as had, and finally would if they could stop me using peat or peat based products, total spoil sports
