Have you got a gardening show as a 'go to' for any problems?

Ive got "gardening australia" .....very informative but a bit heavy on the technical side. For instance when they say "if youre thinking of starting a garden" .....another words talking to the novice. They give a long list of "ingrdients to make a basic soil up. If you were beginning a garden straight away youre immediately turned off.

Or do you have a favourite gardener celeb?..... mines 'Costa'.... man can he grow a beard. I think he fertalizises it.
The 'radical' left just wants everyone to have food, shelter, healthcare, education and a living wage. Man that's radical!....ooooohhhh Scary!

No, not watched a gardening show since I had to, that would have been when living at home with Mother :wah:

I've got no garden at present, just two yards with pots, that's my limit, which reminds me I've still not got round to cutting my geraniums right back and now the weather has turned really cold I'm guessing I'm going to have to wait until early spring.

I shall have to google it for advice :-3

I am fairly new to gardening. When I have a problem I am lucky to have a neighbor with all the advice I need.

I just go out and plant and as her when I see a problem.

gardens are ****e here where I live, the weather makes it tough to grow a real good one.

Mind you the weeds thrive ;)

The only thing that defines a weed is that it's something natural that isn't wanted in the garden.

I don't know of any shows about gardening. I do know this. My husband royally screwed up ...a friend gave him a large greenhouse. He put our washer/ drier in it last winter....for the last year everywhere I go I have beg borrowed or stolen cuttings off of people's plants I liked. I have a lemon tree, two orange, two lime, two pots of banana trees, sugar apple, amongst my collection all sitting in that laundry house now!!

I've never come across one of those before - fascinating.
