Monty Don and the Red String

The Sock has been asked to say something about Monty Don who is currently indisposed leaving the Homer Monkey to front Gardener's World.

Last year Don answered curious members of the BBC Gardening Boards (of which we have no knowledge) regarding the red string bracelet he was seen to wear on GW. Don posted that..

"...It was a red string called kalava which is tied by a priest to the right wrist of males and the left of females in Hindu temples when you make an offering. It is designed to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck and must not be removed until it naturally falls off..."

Doesn't seem to be working Monty - you should ask for your money back!
