Hampton here we come!

Posted by John Marshall on 12 Jun 2008 at 04:21 PM

A phone bill arrived last week: 500 calls made in the last quarter! Sometimes I do feel I spend more time talking to nurseries, suppliers and so on than actually out there in the garden getting my hands dirty.

But I've now sourced almost everything. All the plants have arrived at the nursery which has agreed to grow them on for us, and I can see our garden's going to be seriously colourful.

Fortunately, it's been raining, so no need to water the plants. Unfortunately, there's been precious little sunshine, so I'm slightly nervous about the fig and olive trees.

There's certainly no shortage of things to worry about. Just what are we going to do at the end of the show with the 40 cubic metres of green waste we've been donated? It's so expensive to hire a skip to remove it all.

Will we win a medal? And most importantly, will the public love our garden and be inspired to try these organic gardening methods at home? I've seen them being used in Africa to grow food on previously infertile land, so now I really want people to try them out in the UK.

But, as my two-year-old grandson has taken to saying: Chill out! And surprisingly, despite the odd moments of panic, overall I am quite chilled. In fact, I think it's going to be fun.

It's time to get off the phone and start gardening!
