I have an olive tree in a pot and it is left outside all year round. I live in Cornwall and don't get frosts, but I do wrap the pot in fleece just to give a bit of extra protection to the roots as they are above ground.

I'm not hard hearted and I love animals ( I have 2 dogs and 2 cats myself) but GW is a gardening programme, and we will lose the small amount of gardening programmes that we get if we focus more on the presenter's personal life and less on the gardening aspect. It's not "at home with MD" it'e Gardener's world. There is little enough content in the programme as it is - we'll be attending Carole's daughter's wedding and Rachel / Joe's kids scholl plays next!!  I want seasonal advice and a proper look around the garden in autumn - surely not too much to ask?

A recent photo?!! I thought you'd been pickled in aspic, circa 1940  at least you've achieved Internet Immortality  Seriously, you make a good point, often Google points you to Forums, and if you find one you like, why not stick with it and ask the questions there? At least you get to know the contributors......and their foibles
