Gardener's World Tonight.

08 September 2017 13:23:20

I am sure everyone on FB has heard the news that Helen Dillion has been invited to Longmeadow and you can see it tonight at nine o'clock on BBC 2. Would hate anyone to miss out because they did not hear about it. The programme is repeated a few time over the weekend if you don't catch it tonight.You can log into FB pages that are public if you don't use FB yourself.

Many thanks Mary I hope she is not too respectful! But I always remember her visiting a garden in Borris. It was a nice well kept garden but was not especially filled with exotic or extraordinary plants. Helen was so appreciative and I know she made the owner feel very proud. She picked out all its good points and really respected the work gone into it.

Helen, is always positive when she visits a garden! Peter and I did like her on that programme she co presented with Diarmuid Gavin. I enjoyed her spot on Gardener's World this evening, but Monty did seem a bit nervous.

I thought that Monty was really nervous especially as he is normally soooo confident. Nice to see that side to him too. You could see his nervous laugh ;). She was really complimentary and excited. But as you say she is like that, and whenever I've seen her too. Really enjoying these hour long programmes. Loved the exotic garden that was made only 8 years ago. Love the before and after photos.

We get a positive feel while we visit the garden and it seems to be really interesting

I can imagine how he felt while preparing for the visit!!!!!  Lovely to see it last night.  I too loved that tropical garden - just amazing.

Really enjoyed Gardener's World last night and he exotic garden was to die for, fantastic planting and plants. I enjoyed Monty and Helen as well and thought it was very funny to see him nervous and excited at the same time but they are a good duo who i'd like to see more of.
