Know your soil type

christopher2 surely common sense would tell you to do some research before buying plants? But people don't so why do you think they are going to research plants that match their soil types?

I agree that new gardeners should know their soil type, but whatever happened to a bit of common sense. If you are in a Cornish valley surrounded by Azaleas that you will probably have acidic soil, if you are on the coast it may be sandy and if you have heavy clay that you cannot get your fork in, that it is alkaline. 

Some people try to garden in isolation, without lifting their heads and looking at what is growing next door. Some people also seem to enjoy battling against the conditions in their own garden. A fool and his money.............

Hurrah! New Gardening Prog.

This was truly awful, just an hour of mawkish rambling. Nothing new, nothing original, if there was any gardening I missed it. I cannot believe it was on prime time, much better suited to Channel5 in the morning.

So if you understand that the producers/directors and commisioning editors dictate the contents, the slow pace, even the choice of presenters it would be better to start a new thread titled GW production .

You are very naive if you believe the presenter controls the content
