    Do you think there are makeup artists, who apply just the right amount of dirt to their hands and nails, after the manicurists have done their bit?

    We must all remember that TV gardeners are choosen for their presenting skills not their gardening knowledge. That can be provided by others.

    I've never watered my outdoor spuds although do water the polytunnel ones from the start. Did he advise on what to do with the varieties that don't flower?

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    And that's the problem with a lot of 'celebrity' gardeners...they make generalizations which may or may not be appropriate for the prevailing growing conditions. If I was growing spuds on a light sandy soil and it hadn't rained for a month I'd be inclined to ignore that particular advice.
