    Default Weedlessnessness theory on Gardener's World

    Everytime I look on Gardener's World, there's not a weed in sight.

    I have a theory.

    In the Middle Ages the lowest of the low gardeners were 'weeders', women paid pittance to do all the weeding and grubbing/ground work?

    Think the BBC has an army of horticultural students they use to get everything looking ship-shape before my beloved (don't tell his wife!) Monty swans in and starts telling us how to plant stuff up?

    And I'm sure holes are pre-dug and hands never seem to get too dirty.

    I would think you have hit the nail on the head.

    Pity they can't use the same people to control the snails/slugs I would be ashamed to have that sort of damage in my garden.

    I hate it when they dig up a root veg, say carrots, and they come out clean as a whistle without any sign of damage. Probably bought them at the nearest farm shop!

    Remember my old grandad saying that you could always tell the presenters that didn't do any real gardening as they were the ones who were out of puff after one spade full of soil and then suddenly as if by magic the whole area was dug - hmmmm. wonder who did that.......

    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?
