Corset calamity

Whoops. AG's howler

Whoops. AG's howler

A few weeks ago the Royal Horticultural Society announced they were going to collect used bras and pants, and turn them into containers to grace a display at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July. I’m not sure how many folk have answered the call to go commando or braless for the RHS, but I do think it’s had an influence on the sub editors at everyone’s favourite gardening weekly. When the latest issue of Amateur Gardening landed on the door mat I spotted this howler on Bob Flowerdew’s page. Under the headline, Love me tender, it reads, ‘Bob’s looking forward to letting his tender plants basque in the summer sun’. Now, I’m not an organic gardener, but surely trussing up an avocado, eddoe or banana in a tight fitting bodice might cause untold damage? Wouldn’t he be better off protecting his plants with a loose layer of horticultural fleece?
