Sunshine, shopping and Monty Don
The second week in June and it's the maddest gardening week of the year....Gardeners' World Live! As I write we are all at Birmingham's National Exhinition Centre, rushing to put together tonight's show.
The week started with towering temperatures and a united battle by the show garden designers to keep their plants from cooking.
It's ending with umbrellas and sharp showers but don't let that deter you from visiting - it's promising to be a great weekend here.
Understandably, the main topic on everyone's minds seems to be, who is going to take over from Monty? The rumours are rife and anyone seen standing next to our film crews is suddenly seen as a possible contender. I hate to quash rumours but, truthfully, no decision has been made and the hunt is still on. But while that decision is being made I personally want to celebrate the great job the existing presenters and production team are doing to ensure it is business as usual at Berryfields. Thank you to all.
As for a new presenter, it great to hear from the people that watch us every week so keep the suggestions coming and then watch this space!
