A Toby Buckland fan here too.  The wrong format but not his fault.  Very knowledgeable...like his style

Buying a perennial for £10...then you don't shop around?.....and dividng it into 4 or more pieces, esp in autumn, will give you full size plants quickly.

Perhaps it's about time we spoke up with loud voices.  It is NOT  right for disabled to have their benefits cut. Ask Osborne and Cameron if they have had a pay cut and if not, why not?  Who is this country being prepared for if not for ordinary people? If only we had a strong labour party!!! 

sunny now but wind has picked up....you were right Hosta.    Finished mulching acid lovers in pots.  Another top up soil prep for sowing carrots etc.

Begonia Baskets- single colour or mixed please?

Morning Tingly

I don't really grow the begonias you ask about but single colours every time whatever the plant.  Mixed colours of wallflowers, for example, are disturbing to the eye. 

one colour per basket.  Superb 

any leaves not pristine or obscuring flowers just snip off.  Feed and water well of course

Well, they didn't even interview me . I was so sure I got the job that I earmarked loads of expensive plants GW would buy for me.  I suggested a few changes, sure, like Verdun's World and roses would never be mentioned...neither bamboos. Nor to be broadcast on Fridays as it is inconvenient for me.   I think when I demanded a constant supply of donuts it was a package too far for the unimaginative BBC toffs

Don't overlook scented plants BennetM.  Sarcoccoa, daphne,,hamamellis, choisyas and philadelphus.  Regal lilies for mid summer too to fill your garden with wonderful smells.

Hosta!     On this prog I think Monty has been in his element.  GW is not so good.....just wish the powers that be could produce a series on plants featuring the growers,,breeders and specialists

Hosta, the tories can do what they like now...the further cutting of disability benefits seems very harsh. Surely the fraudsters have been weeded out now so it is the genuinely disabled who are affected. The "fifth richest country in the world"?  So why are we cutting to the bone? 

HD for sure Dove.....they're all HD now anyway.  4K is the way to go. 46" is a good size. Always have fun when buying tv's........just haggle esp if adding recorders etc., and ask for a trade in on your old tv.
