Hi Daniel, I love this forum site because everyone is very keen to help and I learn a lot by reading others questions and answers also I subscribe to Gardeners World mag and love it.
I have however been waiting for an opportunity to comment on the Gardeners World BBC program and maybe this is it. I want to say that I am finding the program very boring of late, Monty has a wealth of knowledge but I seem to be waiting for him to show me something new or give me a little gem of gardening info that I can find useful because I've never heard or thought about it before. I spend time looking for Nigel these days as I find him more interesting!
Monty seems to spend the program telling us how he has moved things around his garden or enormous pond or how to repot a plant or grow seeds, I'm not an expert but I've learned how to cover the basics and now I want to know more indepth info like, what to do when things go wrong? how to create a garden with less money? perhaps more of Carol showing how to increase our plant stock or maybe talk more in depth about certain plants each week, it's also a little anoying when he talks about his fantastic composting which is easy for him because he has masses of room and probably loads of people to assist him.
Please do not think I'm being unkind I love and respect Monty Don but I've got to the stage were I'm not bothered if I miss Gardeners World now, when not so long ago I wouldn't have missed it for anything.
