You don't have to be gay to think CB is an ideal man. He's just lovely - friendly, pleasant, intelligent, knowledgeable and a garden plant and design guru. What more can you want?
They can all win gold FG. It's not a competition against the other gardens. It's about following the brief and attention to detail and scoring points in several preset categories. I can't believe they thought his planting too dense given that that's what Chelsea gardens do - cram the place full of plants, often performing before or after their normal season. It's a lot more "natural" now than when I first attended in 1989. Still OTT but it's a show, so that's OK.
I want to see gardens, with ideas I can adopt of modify for my own, not miniature landscapes of Mars, Lebanon, Provence, deserts - we've had them all.
Hot here already but breezy so OK. I have to spray the polytunnel to clear it, plant and pot on treasures, sow some beans and sand furniture. Public holiday for Ascension here so a quiet day.
