Gardeners World - not back for 4 weeks!

Given the choice between that arrogant prat Murray and one of those awful grunting women at Wimbledon or Monty Don and Carol Klein I think the majority would go for the latter. How can this be so difficult for the Beeb to grasp?

I feel a strongly worded letter coming on.

Not sure about Tichmarsh's latest effort either. Hopefully it will improve.

 

The majority wouldn't- the viewing figures show that-the point is that we could have both.

Then you now have a 500-1 shot-Foinaven was 100-1 and he won.

Strangely it is soya bread-I had to avoid some daft women doing the dance of the seven snails to get it

smallswan-have you seen Gary's video on the weather thread?

Of course in all this we don't know the deal with the presenters-perhaps they are only contracted to do so many hours of tv-or they may have other tv or outside projects on-those Italian Garden type programmes must take a lot of time.

I doubt that GW is only the source of income- otherwise how do they earn in the winter?

Ok-this narrows it down-but not by much-right side of the screen

I'm destitute now -reduced to eating bread crusts I found in a garden

Collapsed from what-exhaustion?-was it a cheapie or worth a trip to get a refund?

I could give you a clue on spot the wally

For Germany the trip is over-it will be a South European final as I predicted months ago

I cheat-I use watered down white emulsion same as whitewash-you can buy special shading material and paint if you want to spend the pennies

You would end up with a dirty wet sheet -what would the neighbours think?

I am there- but even my OH couldn't spot me-will my strawberries be safe?

I backed Italy from the start

I leave a vent open on the greenhouse all summer-day and night-and shade the side that gets direct sun-what you are trying to avoid is the massive fluctuations

My feeling is you have been premature in digging those 2 up -also spray the greenhouse floor in the morning to raise the humidity -that helps pollination-it may be another tricky year -bit early to say at the moment

If it is tomatoes it is usually a sign of fluctuating temepatures between night lows and day highs and nothing much to worry about-do you shade the greenhouse?
