Talkback: Growing your own cut flowers

Why is gardeners world not on the tv - i cant believe that the bbc thought it didnt need to be on our screens till after Easter. They obviously dont have a garden!!


  • I agree with hjc about the late start of Gardeners World programme. It really is ridiculous. Us gardeners have been at it for weeks!!! If you have a look at YouTube there is a clip of Toby Buckland introducing the new show from a field in Birmingham where it will now be based. Hmmm interesting.
  • I thought the first Gardener's World was on this Friday, 3rd April? I've set the whole series to record cos I always forget it's on til too late.

    As for cut flowers from the garden - I prefer to see them out in the garden - it makes me feel too sad when they've gone over and it's time to empty the vase :-(
  • I too suffer from SAD but since I planted hundreds of Daffodils which start flowering in early January my SAD condition has ceased. I have chosen Tete a Tete as the taller ones are flattened as soon as they appear by the high winds we get up here. I find the bright yellow lifts my spirits and fools me into to thinking spring is here. So all you SAD people why not give it a try what have you got to lose.
  • Help please I have a north facing concrete yard which is cold gets limited sun a bit in the morning and at night I would like to grow a climbing plant out of a large pot that flowers over an outhouse either self clinging or up a trellis. I live in northumberland so winter temps can plunge down to minus ten. Is there such a plant. Poor thing.
  • Lots of things to grow on a north facing wall. How about a scented white rose Madame Alfred Carriere interplanted with a couple of clematis? Or Hydrangea petiolaris with white blooms.
