GW 22nd June 2017

"This is Will, who lives in a terraced house in London. His garden is only 25 feet by 125 feet. It's amazing he can grow anything."

God, how I hate Adam, though I suppose if you've got a stately home anything less probably is a little constraining.

    I really like Adam.  The slots with him are amongst my favourites. 

    His home is down to hard graft I imagine, and richly deserved too.

    I cannot watch him! His voice is very grating I find.

    He does have an accent which I imagine could grate with some but he's done well for himself by sheer hard work so why begrudge him his big garden?  He's knowledgable, explains things well, gets his hands dirty and is a genuinely nice bloke with no celebrity airs.

    I love his bits on GW and also on Chelsea and other show coverage.

    He has been a much needed breath of fresh air.

    If you want advice on garden design, then a man with 6 Chelsea golds seems a good choice.

    I am sure he has many good points but I have to switch off or mute him when he comes on, that voice is awful I don't think it's the accent it's the tone!

    Give me the guy who makes his living from gardening and has 6 Chelsea gold medals, over the man who makes his living  just writing about it.

    Give me the woman who has run her own successful nursery, won 6 gold Chelsea medals and many more at other shows over the man who just makes his living writing about it.

    I think we are in total agreement there Hosta.

    So what about Trump and the Daily Hate Mail ?

    I think I can say, without fear of contradiction, "we are in total agreement there" too. image

    Can I add Theresa Me Me Mayhem to the list too?
