When visiting Barnsdale (a very nostalgic and reasonably price experience £5 or so) I bought a selection of DVDs and it's lovely to listen to Geoff's gentle voice, and his enthusiasm for small projects. He encouraged me so much to garden - and introducing Bob Flowerdew!!
I do love Nigel with Monty too!!!
Hi Artjak - ooh strong words re G.World presenters! I sort of like Carol Kelin as a person, very bubbly (maybe too much) but she doesn't appear to give much good info. Someone wrote asking about slugs eating plants, and the answer was to grow something that slugs don't like! Not helpful if you've spent money and time raising plants you love! Something like gravel at the base, grease on stems may have been helpful etc., etc.,
Monty does give some good tips now and then i.e. how to prune wisteria was most helpful to me and it worked on a plant which had never flowered for me. This year it was a visual delight - thanks Monty.
