Haven't a clue? Neither has the Sock. And neither has Joe apparently as he put the wrong one under his pumpkin! "Hay will not protect the pumpkin from wet as it has different properties". The Sock quotes you directly from the BBC messageboards so it must be true!
Yet again the Sock is at odds with the general feeling that GW was a little boring this week! It was rich with comedy material and the Sock and Bedsock laughed all the way through. Although this might have been possibly because they started a little early with the apéros (Fat Rascal advises that apéros shouldn't be taken before 6.00pm but perhaps this changes to a bit earlier when the evenings start to draw in.) It was noticeable that Toby tried to ingratiate himself with the ladies of blogworld by planting heucheras although he may find that the 'caramel' can look very washed out and ropey but then so often pansies do too.
It was a shame on Thursday that Channel 5 felt obliged to put some ghastly sport stuff on in place of Doris Bonkers, Laurence LB, the bloke whose name one forgets who seems pleasant and Laetitia MyleeneKlass-alike. The Sock was looking forward to seeing two nice gardens trashed by Doris B. whilst jumping up and down and hissing "too many plants". Apparently Doris has a sign up outside her Veddw Garden saying
excuse the weeds, there are only two of us here.This information was again taken from the Beeb boards and the poster went on to say "if the weeds were removed there would be very little to look at".
And in a week with a dearth of gardening programmes the final insult was to be sunk into the sofa all tucked up with the cats ready to watch Corrie only to catch the end of the magazine-style programme the One Show with the awful Christine Walkden droning away on it! The Sock does hope she is not going to become a permanent Celebrity Gardening fixture on this programme otherwise we will have to ensure that the TV is not turned on until all danger of her appearing is passed.
