This Morning's Headlines

By Ryansgarden @ryansgarden

This Morning's Headlines The Telegraph are fuelling the debate about the use of peat in gardens.  This follows on from recent comments made by Alan Titchmarsh and Jamie Oliver, which have caused somewhat of a kerfuffle with gardeners up and down the land.
In today’s publication the Telegraph focuses on a recent RSPB survey of ‘the country’s top 27 leading gardeners’ and what’s more surprising is that I get a mention.  Described as a ‘more “modern” gardener’ I’m included as one of the eleven gardeners who have managed to cut out peat completely. I'm proud to be in such great company with the likes of Alys Fowler, Charles Dowding and Emma Cooper also favouring reduced use of peat.

In other news my post on RHS Cardiff appears to be getting some attention in Amateur Gardening magazine.  If you don’t buy the magazine you can read the full text here and I’d love to hear your comments.  Should bloggers dare to have opinions?  I think we should!
