Someone has asked me about the potting compost used by Monty. It is supposed to contain some microbe which helps roots grow. Now, I never watch Gardener's World so I cannot help. Does anyone know what this is?
Do you mean the mycorrhizal fungi? You can catch the last episode on iPlayer, it starts just before 40 minutes in then Monty uses on 44+
It is mycorrhizal fungi. These help roots grow and establish in the soil and are beneficial to plant growth.
Thanks. Cannot abide the man so I will not be watching it, but am grateful.
Don't want to tilt the balance, but I'm with Verd
I like Monty, but find the programme could benefit from a more ordinary garden approach rather than the estates with a thousand acres
I agree with that Alan - there are often TV programs about lovely gardens.
Gardeners World should focus on the stuff that most of us folk here discuss and Monty (in my opinion) is a very good host, has a vast understanding of the subject and he usually explains things well.So more stuff for us real people please
Monty is my favourite. I do agree about the huge Lincolnshire garden and the bottomless pit of money that enables all his tasks to be done in an instant. I'm very envious.
