Thats good to know chicky, I'm sure I will enjoy it. I assume he just gives one talk at one location? Was hoping he'd be visiting Sheffield.

Just found out that Monty is giving a talk called 'Down to Earth' at Preston Guild Hall on Sunday 13th November 2016.


Its a talk about his life, travels, behind the scenes filming, and his own garden. Tickets cost £21.50

Ive just booked myself a ticket, sadly the wife isn't at all interested so I'm going on my Jack Jones! Its a 2hr drive from Sheffield but Im looking forward to this.

Lawn Edging Options

Everedge steel lawn edging is very good. Ive got some but haven't installed it yet. Mine are plain steel but they are available in different colours.




New pond

Thanks for the photos Thirtybyseven. Your pond looks great, and will look even better come spring summer with some planting. Just keep an eye on weeds growing in the meantime. Do a search on Google images for wildlife ponds to get ideas of how you want yours to look.

Summer house discussion

Thanks Dove.

This is an old photo now, but instead of braking up the sheds old hardstanding I used it instead to erect a greenhouse. You can see the shed/summerhouse behind it..

This was already in my garden when we moved in..



I wanted to move it back 6ft so it was up against the rear boundary as the space behind was bing wasted. So I dismantled it and built a new hardstanding, and reassembled it, and reflected the roof with underfoot and mineral felt. I just need to put guttering on it now to collect water. I didn't like its original red cedar colour so I painted it Cuprinol Old English Green ..


Ive laid some lino on the floor and put in a spare settee and armchair. I keep all my old Gardeners World magazines in there and when the wifes not looking I disappear for an hour. Or two !!
