Stunning up to the point that it becomes a big polytunnel!

Where is the glass?

You can see it on iplayer if you don't have cable or sky, if you look for them on facebook or twitter they keep you posted as to when it is on. Even before I was a gardener I have loved it as there is a nice family feel to the show. My Dad used to watch it when I was younger and I picked it up from there.

Thanks for the heads up on this, just watched it over lunch and found it very educational!

I wonder if I can graft another type of pear onto my tree...

The one thing they didn't mention is what time of year is best?

Oh splendid, I managed to double post, hours apart by clicking 'refresh' this morning and can't manage to delete the post without leaving a gap so this is a filler!

It's all my own fault really. Stripping away a bit of the lawn to make a seating area and putting those two raised beds in. I'm going to stab the lawn enthusiastically next year and wield a brush with lots of sharp sand and see if I can improve the drainage a bit in the damp bits. Putting up the final raised bed will get rid of the biggest puddle too but I guess that will just end up choosing the next lowest spot! Now I wish I'd stabbed the ground under the big area of weed membrane under the stony seating part as I wonder if the membrane has slowed the drainage and that's part of the issue!

I'm not going to keep the dog on the lead in the garden. Thankfully it is down the bottom of the garden and more of a pain in the arse than an actual problem!
