I enjoyed Friday's GW though I don't think Monty is very good at set pieces with RHS gardeners. However, it was good to see open gardens with vistas and mixed plantings.
I didn't like the overall view of the Piet Oudolph garden - too dull and monotone - but some of the close ups of the beds and the perennials used were luscious. I prefer grasses with perennials rather than the other way round. I love miscanthus and also grow carex, molinia and hakonechloa which do very well here. Stipas and penisetums and so on are too nesh for my garden..
