Monty is fine, the programme is OK, but seeing the ruddy dog all the time drives me bonkers. I like dogs, and Nigel's OK, but it's a gardening programme - please - not an indulgent dog cameo-corner. Enough. Beechgrove is a gigantic garden, with a swimming pool sized 'pond' and that's fair enough despite it has little in common with the hanky patches attached to modern dolls' houses And I've also had enough with the dead box hedge. I just wait for the 'to do' list and enjoy the pretty pictures. It's aspirational with a genial host. I quite liked his jewellery in the 80's, shame it went bust.
Have to agree Jack,all he seems to do is dig stuff up and then plant more stuff,I think we all know how to do that.And the times he mentions that bloody box hedge is doing my head in.I now record it so I can miss out the boring bits which leaves about 10 minutes worth watching.
