Jo’s an expert in gardens (not)

grey me

 

Here is an arty picture of me pretending to be one of the gardening experts on Gardeners’ Question Time although no self-respecting panellist would show as much cleavage as I am doing here. Yesterday Dan and I took part in the recording of the show’s special programme from the Chelsea Fringe including performing a NEW Gardeners’ Question Time song, which Dan had written especially for the occasion. Listen out for us in the show that goes out this Friday at 3pm and is repeated on Sunday at 2pm. This makes us only the second ever comedy act to appear on the programme since it started in 1947 after ourselves – we were the first ever comedy act to feature when we appeared on the show last year. It was all very exciting as we got to meet our gardening idols Eric Robson, Matthew Wilson and Bunny Guinness again and met lovely Anne Swithinbank for the first time.

Even more exciting was the fact the programme appeared to have been tailored to my needs with questions about maintaining a small and patchy lawn (I have one of those), pruning or rather not pruning acers (I have lots of those and was not sure how to maintain them), and planting a cottage garden in a space that is sunny part of the day and shady for part of the day (my garden). I found out that I may have planted my sweet peas all wrong so they will not create wonderful cascades of sweet smelling flowers as planned but you live and learn.
