I went to Chelsea last Wednesday. Got there at 8.15am and stayed until 4.30pm. It was great. Joe Swift's and Chris Beardshaw's gardens were lovely. On the whole, the gardens were too green for me - I love vibrant flowers. There were lots of buttercups and cow parsleys on show - I've been trying to eradicate them from my garden  The Great Pavilion was as sumpuous as ever, but I do wish there were places in there to sit down.

I enjoyed the tv coverage too - roll on next year

Sorry if there already is a thread, but I couldn't find it 

I enjoyed the programme but have missed proper gardening, that's 2 weeks running 

I read that MD's garden was flooded and I would like to know how he's dealing with the consequences and what tasks he could still perform.

Hope there's a proper programme this week, co then it's Chelsea!

Gardens to visit in Cornwall

I live near St Ives. NT Trengwainton is good as is the garden at St Michael's Mount. Tregenna Castle Hotel in St Ives has a small but interesting garden which is free to visit - and they do great cream teas. Trelissick, Glendurgan and Trebah are not too far....but please do go to Trengwainton.

It spreads rapidly in my borders and smothers other plants. I keep digging it out and keep watch for it at all times

It's a rampant weed here - I've just glyphosated a whole load in one of my borders

I don't like the dog - he should be indoors instead of distracting the cameraman
