Bbc Gardeners World Live at the NEC - humph!

Hello, has anyone been to the bbc gardeners world live at the NEC before? I have just opened the envelope with my tickets in and am a bit annoyed at all of the hidden extra costs.  When you add them up they come to well over the price of the actual tickets. Now I'm always happy to pay my way, but theses extra costs should have been made clear in all of the advertising. I imagine they appeared somewhere in the 'teeny tiny small print'. £2 to enter the Gardeners World Theatre to hear one of the celebs talk, £2.50 for a shopping bag, £10 to go for a pre-show walk, £10 to park a car, £20 to park your car if you want to be within walking distance of the venue..... there is also a warning that 'the cash points at the event get very busy so bring cash with you' - I imagine they do with all of these extra costs!  Very naughty BBC Gardeners World. 

Tomato leaves curling?

morning folks, here are some photos of the curly crimped leaves, compared to a normal one. First time of growing a bell pepper. It's in the greenhouse between some tomatoes and cucumbers. I have been watering it twice a week. There is the odd greenfly but nothing concerning I the bugs department. I will try watering less but if it's really hot just give this one plant some water? Thanks ever so much.

Any chance of a photo? Sounds just wonderful. Perhaps a trip to the RSPCA to give a homeless doggy a taste of your fab home? Sounds like you would be a pretty special owner and it'd be one very lucky and grateful woof woof!

Bees and more bees!

Is it true that bees get drunk on pollen? I've seen a few looking a bit wobbly and a couple that looked almost asleep? How can you tell when a bee is asleep?

Don't worry Victoria Sponge. I'm sure that comment was purposefully intended to be so rude and judgemental.  Thank goodness there are kind people out there who give our furry friends a home, especially those who have been mistreated.  Time for me to exit this thread before any more judgements on ones 'ability to have meaningful relationships' are expressed. Off for a cup of tea with my lovely mother in law!! X
