Some really positive suggestions above....lots of enthusiam and passion! I think Nigel is a lovely hound and he makes me smile....and after a week at work, that is a priceless bonus for me...today however is saturday!! yippee! pricking out plants, sowing more seeds at home...then an hour on the allotment digging furiously before the rain came in bucket loads. Hot bath and ready to do some more of the above tomorrow.....bliss! I used to watch Percy with my dad....but got hook on GW with Geoff. I thought Alan was fab on GW too....and ofcourse Monty, Carol, Rachel & Jo......happy gardening everyone

I love gardeners world...Its the start of my weekend....it inspires me...but its just not long enough. Tonight was lovely, but I wanted more...I wanted to know about the plants in one of the gardens shown...I wanted to know more about over wintering plants and what to do to prepare them for the new season...I wanted to know more about the buddlejas.....however, I recorded it...so I'll watch it again and pretend its an hour long!
