I'm actually watching this live for the first time and have yet to see any of the others I've recorded. Enjoying it so far and especially seeing Charlie having fun. Seems like a good design so far and I love the bog garden, probably cos it's got the same plants as mine.
We have clumps of bamboo in our new garden which I did want to take out but maybe just taking the leaves off up to head height will be enough. Worth trying. Will have to make OH sit and watch it.
We have lots of pots at the mo for things that can't go in the garden as they need protecting over winter. Some are ceramic and some plastic. All get heaved about in the wheelbarrow as there isn't a smooth path to wheel them to shelter. OH hates pot moving time in spring and autumn. Hard work.

I've watched 'live' today as well. I have to say it's the first design, and installation, I've seen which I really like. Of course they did have a healthy budget of £8k. I liked the fact that the problems they encountered were shown, and the way they modified the design 'on the fly' to address them. Interesting though that Charlie reckoned that Phyllostachys Aurea is a clump forming bamboo which doesn't throw out runners. To be fair, mine did stay nicely contained in a clump until the numpties who did the hard landscaping to remodel my garden removed the barrier!
