poor old Monty is in trouble again
some people have chosen to take offence when he slammed begonias a few weeks back. his opinion and I am happy for him and anyone else to offer it. I don't like begonias either....those big, blowsy, shapeless overly bright monstrosities. (Ha ha! That's shocked some of you ). However, I know one or two who are growing superb, impressive begonias so huge respect .
i grow a couple of the "bonfire" small flowered cascading type and I really like those
now Monty has ruffled a few more feathers by (tongue in cheeek) criticising those trying to be self sufficient. Shock! Horror!
I hope the powers that be don't rein Monty in. Free speech even in the horticultural world is essential.
(Need to think of something contentious myself now Did
I say I don't like roses in our gardens? )
