Chelsea Bl00dy Flower Show

It's enough to put anybody off gardening

I'm a keen gardener .................

But this elitist show of stupidly designed gardens that couldn't possibly survive in the real world just gets my goat

The place is awash with the usual crowd of "celebrity" gardeners who look like they wouldn't want to break a fingernail......

I went there once...... never, ever again

Re: Chelsea Bl00dy Flower Show

errrr..... you missed the point

It's the negative effect it probably has on people who may watch it because of an interest in gardening.....

It will surely put them off

I'm trying… and struggling. That's my only rant about the show.

Re: Chelsea Bl00dy Flower Show

I don't purport to understand it, but I guess it's a bit like fashion. It's meaningless stuff, displayed by people who look nothing like human beings, but some of it filters down to Joe Public at street level.

Re: Chelsea Bl00dy Flower Show

I must say that I find it very interesting. Not enough material for the amount of coverage that the BBC give it but still worth seeing.

I like looking round gardens when I'm in Italy and seeing all of the things that are on the gardening programmes but which won't grow in Scotland.

Last years interest in Oleanders met a frosty end over the winter, but the Wisteria is flowering nicely this year and the Agapanthus seem to be coming up well.

See, I do have a softer side!

Re: Chelsea Bl00dy Flower Show

Well.....

Judging by your responses, so far, I guess I've got it wrong... (again )

It doesn't seem to have the negative effect I thought.....


Oh Well......


Time to plant some more cabbages
