Its a real pleasure to jog around - even when its raining.I agree that the current economical Doom and Gloom is certainly getting people out of there houses and into public places around the city besides the shops! Which is a refreshing change providing its respected and looked after.Hopefully an excellent summer will push this trend even more.Cheers,Tony Wed 10 Jun 2009 09:03:26 GMT+1 rickmad http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/gardenersworld/2009/04/outdoors_in_the_city.html?page=86#comment13 Hi everyone I watched gardeners world on friday and was interested to see the item on a garden in suffolk particualy regarding equium plant? I am fortunate enough to have grown these in hertfordsire, my current one stands at 13ft and is in full flower, I would be gratefull if someone could give me the correct spelling Mon 18 May 2009 14:55:52 GMT+1 Valgal http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/gardenersworld/2009/04/outdoors_in_the_city.html?page=80#comment12 I was a little comforted to read from Alys that slugs and smails have wreaked havoc in her garden. I was devastated to see the destruction, in one night, of my beautiful sink garden, and dear little border full of bedding dahlias (well, it was!). Can anyone offer some hints, tips, ideas?Last night, I did collect 96 snails and 12 slugs but I'm sure I've not exhausted the supply. Tonight I'm going out again, armed with torch, a bucket of eggshells and salt water, but my plants are laced or skeletal so I'm determined to prevent any more ruin.

So out of date..This is crisistime: back to basics. Back to the roots!

Having grown everything (with mixed success!) in a mini greenhouse using plastic 'cells', I transfered them all to the ground a week or so ago - and what a nightmare! when you have a full tray of seedlings, getting them out is impossible without disrupting the compost/roots or bending the neighbouring plant.I may be being clumsy or worrying unnecessarily (the seedlings should survive anything?) but I would to know how this is done properly.

I would still like to see Isobel on the TV!

I have been gardening for about 10 years now and am learning all the time. I can't make out why there are all these complaints on the blogs and can only assume that all the satisfied viewers are out there in the garden getting on with it!!I like the emphasis on getting children interested and can't wait for my 3 little grandaughters to be old enough to help me in the greenhouse!Sorry you are not on air this Friday but will just have to make do with the new magazine until you are on again!

You've really got me inspired, the Beets are in, as are the Carrots. Now it's wait and see time, have I been a good sudent !

The courgette advice was timely - I was about to sow far too many for the family's needs.

This is not a criticism of Toby, but of the programme schedulers who consider rugby to be more important than gardening.
