Gardeners World new season

Posted: 15/03/2013 at 23:33

I watched tonights show and have to say it was boring, splitting a perennial, sowing sweet peas and planting a bare root rose have all been done before and were better explained and presented by previous hosts, Joe's current design section is a waste of time gold medal winner or not and Carol is just too smiley and happy to be true, The producers are trying to make Monty more likeable by playing on our love of animals hence the increasing presence of Nigel and the programme is becoming old hat. Come on BBC lets have some new blood with some new refreshing ideas and presentation style, In my opinion Toby and Alys would be a very welcome return given the poor start to this season so far.

Norm - it may take you a while to work out Geoff's thought processes but you'll soon get used to them

Who said it's possible to work out Geoff's thought processes? Norm, don't even go there  That way madness lies

I must admit to being lost on the sleeping one Flo, I had better luck with the advent calendar

Oh to be 21 again, full head of hair, no back problems, good eyesight, single and carefree, those were the days, looks like it's the windowsill and the conservatory for now then.

Thanks Bjay I'll have a go at that later, just have to go off and be Dad's taxi for a while ferrying daughter to her boyfriends for New years Eve. Jo it's not so much moving the greenhouse but actually building it, as it's parcelled up in the garage at the moment awaiting for me to lay a base upon which to build it

Afternoon forkers, not been around much this past week, hope you all enjoyed your festivities and santa bought you what you wanted. Totally flumaxed by the recent weather, I had planned to use the holiday to start moving things in preparation for a bit of a garden revamp and getting the base in for the new greenhouse but despite having land drains the garden's just too wet to do anything constructive, so I shall have to be patient. You can guarantee once I am back at work the sun will come out and things will dry out!, never mind you can't battle with nature. Managed to bottle the homemade beer this morning so that can stay indoors for a few weeks before moving to the garage for a few months. I am debating buying a propagator and am torn between buying a ready made jobbie or buying soil  warming cables and a thermostat and making my own heated bench, decisions, decisions? hope you all have a happy new year.

Afternoon guys, sorry to hear you not well Dove, hope you feel better soon. Good news on the beer making front, fermentation has started successfully so just have to leave those little yeasties alone to have fun and do what they do. Went shopping for the last minute bits n pieces and now have to assemble the nest of tables that my better half decided we needed, don't know how we managed to forget those . All pressies wrapped, so hoping to relax tomorrow before collecting my parents who are staying with us for crimbo. Choccie guess Holly Willowbooby
