What's a 'rin' water diverter? Is that a make?

A to Z of gardening

Trunkfish is speaking about one tiny portion of what is an excellent compilation of parts from GW and other programmes. That bit was from a Gardener of the Year competion but don't damn the entire programme because of that. Watch it on BBCiPlayer and make your own minds up or, as I did, get up, make a cup of tea and watch it in real time.

Yes her NGS day was cancelled in 2011 and 2012. Does Carol visit here? If so I'd be interested to hear what has happened.

Well there's much more to it than that. Carol rented land from her neighbours on a three year lease for her nursery. The neighbours moved on, the new neighbours wanted the land for themselves. The compost heap close to their patio was mentioned as was Carol's concern over trees being chopped down. I can see from the satellite that Carol's house borders onto a large ploughed field. I wonder if she's made any attampt to purchase a portion of that field for her new nursery......or perhaps the original dispute has resolved itself?

I know that Carol's nursery had to be closed at the end of 2011 after the neighbour declined to renew the lease on the rented land. Did she start up another nursery nearby? I've searched on the Net but there has been no update.

Greenhouse size?

6x4 is defintely FAR TOO SMALL, I think mine is 8x6 and THAT is too small. The bigger the better. Really, secondhand greenhouses are almost given away.

'Queen Elizabeth' is a very tall, gawky HT without scent. Beautiful flowers but little or no scent.

I have recorded almost every GW this series so I can watch it during the winter. It's not as though the winter break is a surprise, they do it every year, so, DID YOU record the past programmes too? No? Oh well,,,,,
