Peter Seabrook is a gardening writer and broadcaster.
Lobby groups jumping onto fashionable campaigns, often to promote their own interests, can do much more harm than good. Take, for example, the move against black polythene plant pots and containers.
What a great trade this is when one of us needs help. "The Container Revolution" co-operative exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a good example.
While the number of regional flower shows at stately homes and municipal public areas grows, the number of nurseries trading at these events reduces.
British horticultural firms and organisations have not been the best at working together to promote our industry.
Peter Seabrook looks forward to garden centre pepper-tasting weekends.
Viewing top-quality plants, both growing and on sale, always gives me pleasure.
