Completely agree Obelixx. I also think that Pamela makes an excellent point about asking viewers what they want from Chelsea coverage. I know that the BBC thinks that viewers dislike change, but at least we know what we don't want. Perhaps they should for once listen. and then

I agree. Bring back Alan Titchmarsh! And plantsmen talking about plants! And gardens with depth and soul! Chelsea on TV has stopped being about gardening and has become "an event". There are plenty of events during the year, so why does the BBC feel it necessary to reduce Chelsea to the lowest common denominator? 


Hedge Ideas

How about a tapestry hedge for colour, variety and wildlife? A mix of your choice of deciduous, evergreen, flowering and fruiting varieties would be terrific and move with the seasons. Shame you don't want thorns as hawthorn, blackthorn and Holly can be spectacular. But photina, guelder rose, beech (green and copper), elder, yew, amelanchier would all fit the bill.

Problem Clay soil

I agree with the digging, compost and sand/grit. The compost and sand helps to open up the tight clay grains. Drainage also helps, but is really hard work. The positive thing is that clay soil can be tremendously productive and is well worth the effort. Freshairfanatic, add loads of compost on the surface and fork in in the autumn/winter so that the frost can open the soil up.
