Mr Monty Don at Ventnor Down to Earth Evening

Can i just add a few words here on how much i enjoyed Monty's talk on his garden and love of it.. it was a packed out show and it was awesome.. to hear him talk of his love and how his garden has grown from meadows/fields to what it is now.. the ups and downs. wonderful i was entralled all evening.. to see private parts of the garden that the show does not go in..

The questions and answers afterwards were wonderful. and the meet and greet also.. i got my book signed and was able to have a few words. thank u Monty for making me realise i am not mad to love my gardening  as i do.. it is my family who are mad not to love it also..

The only thing was NIgel was not there to all of ours dissapointment.. but wre told fame had gone to his head. adn he got more fan male than Monty did lol.. a wonderful evening to talk ... laughter enlightenment.. thank u Monty xxx

    So so jealous, I love Monty and would love to meet him,especially after reading about his depression, hearing him genuinely inspires and uplifts me when I' m feeling low, he seems like a very good person, and I do love Nigel too! I did see he's doing a talk on my birthday in october but it's in London and I think it'd be too much to ask parents to my hubby would disturb the talk with snoring, think it'd be his idea of hell!
