When it comes to false enthusiasm I think Carol K is at the top of the tree. Maybe she's genuine, but she comes across as false to me. 

 

This is is a great series but as often, I find myself skipping through certain sections that don't interest me such as the glasshouse section.

Thanks, maybe I ought to introduce some blue into the equation, then I will gave a red, white and blue display for the WW1 centenary. Perhaps blue cornflowers?

Well Ive purchased my poppy seeds, but I'm looking for ideas for plants to accompany the poppies, to both grow amongst them and maybe to hide the poppy foliage after they have flowered.

Any suggestions please?

Enjoyed the tree episode, but as always it didn't really teach me anything. Its all well and good showing us beautiful trees, but I think they should have told us about the most suitable trees for small gardens and perhaps rootstock names such as M27 etc.

They showed us the couple who had kept all the trees in their garden small, which got me excited as I have half a dozen 4ft oak trees still in their pots that I planted from acorns and would like to keep small, but they failed to show us exactly how they did it!

So, a lovely programme to watch, but without the benefit of teaching me anything.

I'm definitely planning to try growing wildflowers at the bottom of my garden next year, including red poppies seeing as its the 100 yr anniversary of the start of WW1.

 

Would i be better sowing any seeds in the spring, or do they need the winter cold to make them germinate?
