    ......whilst on the subject, this gorgeous sweet pea 'Geoffrey Hughes' (aka Onslow) was bred by Eagle Sweet Peas.

    I guess it's down to personal preferences - I quite like Joe Smith but I cannot stand Rachel de Thame's style and I'm not very keen on Carol Klein's style either.

    Now you would never associate Onslow with such a dainty and girly flower! LOL!

    Geoffrey Hughes (now deceased) was a true gentleman, sadly the roles these actors play often colours people's perception of them.

    Geoffrey was a close family friend of the Heathcote (Eagle) family and the sweet pea was named after him as a token of remembrance.

    I love Monty Don, he's warm and I couldn't care less what qualification he has, and I like James Wong.... I have an immense distaste form Alan, he makes me uncomfortable I guess.

    Unlike other presenters, I've never once heard AT or CK give information which is factually inaccurate.

    I've put all of this year's Chelsea coverage on series link so I can ff all the bibble babble and just look at the gardens and the plants. There does seem to be a lot of presenters this year though. I like Monty, Carol, Rachel, don't mind Toby or James. However when Joe Swift was chatting to Anne Marie Powell I couldn't grab the remote quick enough, their voices just set my teeth on edge. Watching Diarmond Gavins creation made me feel nauseous with all those spinning trees. I'm looking forward to the artisan gardens the most and to see what Andy Sturgeon and Chris Beardshaw have designed.

    Mr Gavin delights in upsetting all the stuffed shirts at Chelsea, and this one will probably do the same as his multi coloured balls some years ago.  At least it's different - not that I'd want it as mine.

    Just watched all the blah, blah, blah on BBC one. Clebs waffling on about how much they love the design but can't be ars*ed to do it themselves at home. Don't really care what Vanessa Feltz's favourite thing was.

    Hoping to see some actual plants on BBC 2 image

    Is Carol a smoker? She reminds me of Camilla Parker Bowles all the time.

     Either that or she goes everywhere on a motorbike.

    Maybe Carole's weathered by the elements and Camilla's just leathered by jollies abroad. image
