Super Garden

01 January 2010 22:36:34

This laptop is a great thing, especially with internet access!  Today, the house could have done with a good clean but I noticed on the RTE player, all 6 episodes of Super Garden.  Done in 2008, it was based on amateur garden designers, the winner would get to design a garden in Bloom 2009. 

While there is a lot of "repeating" i.e. explaining about the programme at the start of each one, after ever commercial break and at the summary stage, at least there is something gardening in there.  I would have prefered to have got more plant information rather than the cameras just spinning around and watching the judges getting out of the car, sitting on the grass, etc..... 

They were re-broadcast from 14 Dec 09 up to 21 Dec 09.  If you want to look at them go to www.rte.ie/player ; select A-Z on the top right hand corner, select S from the box that appears, and then select Super Garden - the second programme on the second row.

The house cleaning will have to wait until tomorrow!

I had seen some of the repeats before Christmas, these programs seem to be less and less about plants, I cant afford the hard landscaping, I prefer to spend the money on the plants.

I agree Myrtle.  I think there is enough cement already in any garden, between boundary walls, paths and drains that there should be a ban put on any more being put in.  Give me timber any day of the week and PLENTY of plants.
