Gardeners World Live

I went to the gardeners world live show on 12th June with Chris. There were some great inspirational flower displays there. Angelica and astrantia are a couple of plants I would like to get growing in my garden next year. The RHS tent had some great displays in although it was not as big as the one at Tatton.
All the big names were there. Carol Klein was surrounded by a huge crowd so it was hard to hear her speak.
We listened to Alys Fowler talking about thrify gardening.
Toby Buckland was there too. The only one we didn't see was Monty Don who was there on a different day. Oh and Joe Swift but we saw him at Tatton last year so we didn't care about him. Sorry Joe.


  1. Big fan of GW ! (via torrent sites, we don't get it here (Canada))

    Love the team. Must've been very cool seeing them in person. Carol is a delight, what a great gardening buddy she must be.

  2. Glad you've found a way to watch it in Canada. What was really nice about the day was that they stayed for ten minutes or so after their talks so that people could ask them any one to one questions. It was a nice way to get some expert advice. I love Carol too, her book Grow your own veg has been my bible!
