That sounds like a good idea - perhaps in future programmes he could revisit his sketches/ideas and physically plant one up for the viewers. Love it.

I think inspiration does not come TV programmes alone, unless of course you are unable to get out and about. But if you can, I take inspiration from my local environment - other gardens, parks, even the council's hanging baskets strangely. My plans this year is to do a bit of traveling with the kids, not forgetting my camera of course and a sketch book.

I'm itching to get into the garden but the conditions are not quite right, so in the meantime lots of reading, internet, researching painters, photographers, stately homes etc

After I'd watched GW one thing stuck me, it was one of the best beginners introduction to gardening without saying heres an A-Z. Joe's design was fab, it's so hard to put down on paper a vision and even harder to realise it, in the physical sense. But if you did have the "average size " box garden which seems to be norm on new builds, you really could have planted this up exactly how he designed it.

One thing I have to remember, even tho the programme didn't fully inspire me to the point where I was leaping off the sofa. It may have inspired some one else - which is cool because I'll checkout other avenues of inspirational ideas. I love to research.

nightgarden - checkout I find it a good blogging site, still takes a few weeks to get your head around how it works but you do work it out in the end. If your really stuck google "how to" and a answer will appear. Oh, and youtube has a few answers in its vids.

I wouldn't dream of planting out bedding plants just yet. Pot on under a frame for a little while yet. 

I'm the kiss of death to herbs it seems......

Apart from all the obvious reasons, which I'm sure your doing right. Have to tried growing them in a different room, perhaps the conditions are not favorable for some reason or another.

When I first started off, I too use to grow on my kitchen windowsill and everything would die shorty after germination. However, when I got new plastic windows it all changed. Perhaps, my old wooden windows were too drafty or harboured some weird spore that didn't like my seedlings. lol I don't know really, all a bit weird if I'm honest.

Oh no. Another series with Monty Don building his utterly boaring Garden at Licence payers expense.  His garden is nothing like any one elses Garden I know and dose not reflect howweoldbuild our gardens. Unlie past presenters he wallows in self gratification of Long Meadows. If it was not for the likes of Carol or Joe the program would be a black hole in the Gardening caleda. Every time you see his garden many pounds have been spent on Greenhouse, paths and neumerous goodies. He his building his garden at our expense.

" I just want it to be more like most peoples expectations of a garden" - no one on this planet can have the same expectation of what a garden means to me. That's why no one has the "same garden". And why would I want a garden that conforms to what others expectations are, anyway; individual, unique, different springs to mind.

So what exactly are you whinging on about then ? If your complaining about how the BBC uses the TV licence money, which by the way I also contribute. Go and moan to the BBC.

So what if it's filmed in his garden, SO WHAT !! You wouldn't say no if it was filmed in your's, would you ? And I bet you wouldn't say no, if the BBC said, "Oh I know, lets build a wooden framed greenhouse in your garden". No, of course not.

Quit moaning on about utter rubbish.
