I think I may be a bit naive, but I haven't a clue what this thread's really about!

If you've got a power hedge-cutter, use that.

Do you want to screen them for the benefit of passers-by or for yourself?

Not sure if you mean 10m sq (i.e. 10 x 10) or 10sq m (e.g. 5 x 2). If the latter, what are the dimensions? If the former, they really give you some tough assignments - 6 beds at 10 x 10!

Not much fun for the professional gardener! Should be a busy time.

Watch out Dove, when the peregrines have got a taste for pigeons they may come after you. Sorry about the slightly sceptical suggestion - I frequently hear about very unlikely bird sightings from people who are inclined to believe in the unusual rather than the obvious. So, no intention to doubt your skills

We went to Malvern last year and really enjoyed it after a few years of Tatton. I think it's best to swap around a bit, because they seem a bit samey year after year, and Tatton 2011 did seem to be suffering from the recession - show gardens a bit limited. Get there early and take a picnic. Friends/customers who have been to Chelsea swore they would never go again. Us provincials don't like dense crowds, though.

Don't forget the guy who couldn't kill a captive magpie at 2 feet!
