    all TV presenter posts end up as pathetic bickering, get a grip, it's just a TV programme, presenters are just people, dogs are just dogs

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • My post wasn't to stir up arguments.
    Just you can tell Adam is being groomed for possible replacement with his new fancy garden and he doesn't have the likeable charm of Monty but there are other presenters who do.
    I just wanted to see if other people agreed with the view.
    Some people always want to argue.
    I do hope Monty is presenter for a long time to come.

    If GW have been trying to get us used to Adam as main presenter, it's working (for me at least). Enjoyed the show just as much. Nice to see Rachel back. Arit's landscape architecture pieces just keep getting more interesting, and I would like to see more of that on GW. 
  • Really enjoyed seeing Adams garden and he did a great job standing in for Monty.
    Like Monty, Adam is a natural presenter so they both make the show a hit so the future
    looks good for all of us gardeners.

    Adam's "fancy new garden" is I believe the garden of a property he purchased fairly recently.  That being the case, it shows the actual development of a garden, not ripping out and revamping perfectly good areas.

    Would like to have seen more of Adam's garden, much prefer him to Monty, thought Arit's feature was a waste of time.

    I would prefer to have both of them as presenters. So every other week there would be updates from other garden. Their gardens are quite different so this way  they would cover more plants and tasks between the two of them.

    I agree with that, both gardens would be good, and both presenters. But I read somewhere that Monty didn't really want another presenter.

    I loved Kiftsgate, looked even lovelier than when I went there. I didn't really care for the industrial garden, would have rathered some of the industrial bits had been cleared away or re-cycled first and too much time was spent on it.

    My first (late) OH used to call me "wench" as a term of endearment.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    I met the owner of Kiftsgate and her late mother when I visited some 25 ( ish ) years ago. Lovely ladies, but somewhat "scatty" in a nice way.

    Reminded me of a first visit up north for new boyfriend to meet parents. My dad called him a loon, as in 'do you fancy a pint, loon?'. New boyfriend was less than impressed as he thought he was being called a loony - but it was the norm for us to be called  loons or quines!
