Talkback: Gardeners' World Live 2011
I cannot make it to Birmingham to meet you all but hope lots of GW readers do and I hope they have all been watching "Botany - a Blooming history" on BBC4. It was the story of photosynthesis tonight and any gardener who watched it should never again let their plants suffer from lack of water or light or carbon dioxide. Take a tip from me and sing to them - they will flourish from the extra carbon dioxide amazingly, just like the tomatoes that get their extra portion from the power plant next door to their huge greenhouse. Now I know why the tomatoes in my conservatory give a bigger yield than those outside - its all the talking that goes on in the lounge!
