    I am liking Adam more than I used to. His personality is coming through now and he can flap his hands around as much as he likes. The garden in the rectory was stunning with the Bunny Guinness formal hedge design. 

    I would like a more in depth section on how to treat pests diseases and weeds, showing their results at a later date. Overall, I am happy with GW and look forward to it every week.

    Nollie - I have a wonderful book by Michael Jefferson-Brown called "Foliage" which discusses leaves in many and varied forms and colours and textures for many situations and styles of garden but no jungle.

    Agree about pests and diseases - how to recognise, treat and deter - would be good and can be done organically by clever cultivation and plantsmanship if only someone shows us how.

    I'm glad people are finally  warming to AF . He is the least irritating and seems to gave a fresh approach.

    Contrary to the information given on last night's GW, Iris Ensata is perfectly happy on the edge of a pond ( unprotected ) and left IN the pond, (even if it freezes )
    This "clump" predates our arrival 7 years ago and has never been mulched in winter , nor lifted from the water .
    This pond freezes over at least once every winter.
    Devon.

    I expect MD's pond freezes rather longer and colder than yours in Devon @Hostafan1 but the RHS does reckon it's hardy down to -15C - https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/9240/Iris-ensata/Details
