On another thread someone mentioned how much they enjoyed Geoff Hamilton's garden series on DVD. I sent away for it (£8) and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it. I have just watched the 6 episodes of the Cottage Garden back to back - lots of information and tips conveyed in a good down to earth manner. Soo good. Looking forward now to the Paradise Garden set and may even watch the vegetable ones even though I don't grow veg. The best £8 ever!!

    I thought the manner in which Geoff did the programs was just perfection

  • Glad it has given you so much pleasure, hogweed.....I've had a copy for years.

    Wonder if you would like to see this brief slideshow I took during a visit to his Barnsdale garden......apols to those who have already seen it.

    What a coincidence Hogweed.  Mine arrived a couple of days ago and I've been watching the Cottage Gardens episodes today.  I've just started 'The Cottage Economy' episode - but had to break off to deal with blocked drains.  Drat!

    It's fabulous!  Especially loved the episode where he had the overlarge in-bud chrysanthemum  'Ruby Mound' and transplanted it with no bother with it blooming beautifully three weeks later.  Great stuff!

    That is a beautiful slideshow David K.  It brings back so many memories of Geoff in the garden with his common sense approach and making his plant supports. 

    I hadn't thought to look to see if there were any dvds of the series but thanks for posting hogweed.  I think I'll treat myselfimage

    Hi Hogweed

    Will go for it myself. Geoff's easy-going, straightforward style and relaxed manner make for very cozy and informative viewing.
