Ha ha Steve...... I know   I'm sure it gets bigger every time I see Costa.  Get past the beard and he is brilliant.  classic example of never to judge by appearances 


Gardener John, a good lawn is wonderful for any garden.  I am not quite so regular on the edges as you are but once a fortnight on average I guess.  Mind you I have home made concrete edges to mine so they're always pretty neat.


incidentally, I think praise for presenters gives them confidence too so they perform/ relax better . If we show appreciation the powers that be will give us more garden progs

Marrin, check out Sue Procter Hostas.  


Huge range and, for me, the best supplier of hostas.  Usually large size plants supplied in contrast to many other hosta suppliers.

Hey!  Some foolish remarks here.......Fairy has magic powers I can testify to .


Paf, oh yes!  Love Gardening Australia.  


Fidget go to Gardening Australia website, tick downloads and you can watch episodes at your leisure.  Currently 20 episodes this series 


Charlie D is underrated as a presenter...hands on, knowledgeable and increasingly likeable 

Companion plants for purple echinacea?

Oops! Should have said SPIGELIA not spugelia .  What am I like? 


Fairy, we go through phases as gardeners, don't we?  Complementary, even pastel, colours once were the be all and end all for me but now I have a liking for contrasts in places. .....even strong, hot impact, hit you in the face arrangements.  Think it's the "dahlia fever" from now until late autumn.  How can we be subtle with them, or with heleniums or cannas?
