I hope you are right about "late starters" Bizliz, since most of my next generation (nephews and nieces) haven't really given gardening much thought yet. To some extent this is related to the type of accomodation the next generation are living in... more flats, rented etc... than we started out in, and they do like to see my garden, but we have some way to go yet to get them really going. I will help any of my lot when they show a real interest or ask for help, and so far have helped one nephew get started.
I have ranted before on the UTTER failure of GW and MD amongst others to give this any time at all, or to support the schools that do encourage the young ones......... hopefully, folourn probably, they will see this, this time?
