Adam Frost - Gardeners World

    Monty is eloquent and articulate but too often his projects and alll those grandiose pots of tender plants needing serious muscle to shift in and out are not at all relevant to me or my gardening ambitions or what I want in a "how to, when to, what to, where to" gardening programme.  

    Like Hosta, I find MD's garden very claustrophobic and hemmed in.  I like a feeling of light and space and air.   MDs garden was, I believe, conceived and all those hedges and trees planted out when he needed a refuge from the outside world but it's all too enclosed and confining for me, even with some of the hedges taken out.

    I might let him loose in my embryonic potager and the compost heaps but not anywhere else in my garden.

    Anybody want to start a sweepstake on which edition will have Monty giving a full explanation of how to move a tender banana plant at the end of the season? image

    KT - not sure if you'd get decent odds on that image

    I think I might be alone in my opinion of it all...

    I couldn't give a flying chuff about any of it   image

    It's become the visual equivalent of muzak for me. Shame really  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Personally , I'd rather be in my own garden than waste time watching Monty in his image
