Where have we been?

Our ambition is to tour Can You Dig It? to every county in the UK.

Complete and utter excitement!

Eek! I am trembling with excitement having just got my hands on a SIGNED copy of Dr DG Hessayon’s latest Expert book – The Complete Garden Expert, or “The Expert you have been waiting for”, as it says on the front cover. If you’ve seen the show then you’ll know we devote quite a big section of it to our hero Dr Hessayon who knows absolutely everything about gardening and many other subjects. He’s even the “project consultant” on The Cat Expert and The Dog Expert books demonstrating that his knowledge extends way beyond plants and insects and into the animal kingdom. He may be over 80 but DG – also known simply as The Doc – still gets around and recently berated the EU for its “silly” rules on gardening chemicals, of which he is so fond.

You can imagine how thrilled I was to find a signed DG book at my local garden centre and it got even better as it had a sticker on saying “Signed copy – £2 off” although I would have been happy to give all my life savings to own a book that The Doc had actually touched and written on. Maybe some of the residual chemicals on his hands came off on the book too.

Talking of books, Dan and I feature in a new book about playing the ukulele. We performed at the same event as author Mark Wallington and obviously made a big impression. “Two people sang songs about slugs,” he writes. That’s us!!!
