From 2000 till last June; GW has always been recorded to watch after we got home from dance class and I always fell asleep. These days I can watch it live but still fall asleep. so end up watching recordings with my finger on FF. I'm afraid Monty has a very soporific effect. Just not exciting or inspiring and too much time wasted on those dogs, long shots of him pushing his barrow and plants I just don't want or cannot grow.
I've recorded if for years - since the mid 80s - so have always been able to FF through the crud or linger over gems - not many gems on GW for the last few years. Beechgrove has been a revelation by comparison. I'd love to grow my own lemons and limes but can't see it happening, even here. I'm pleased the boring box balls have gone but I see he still has box hedges elsewhere. Why? And how boring are those grasses?
And given that Malvern is supposed to be MD's favourite show and on his doorstep, why wasn't he there? I do like Adam and am so pleased he's championing roses. Carol is great too and I love that epimedium. Joe Swift is a waste of space and I was too distracted by the dreadful shirt and trousers to listen to the new girl talking about plants of no relevance to me or my garden.
