"A lot of people are really getting into vegetables now"

It's on air now, or you can listen back to Nick Wallis from midnight onwards 8/08/08 for the next week - they're really going gung-ho with their gardening chat in a way that's so incredibly british. It's just rather amusing. It's not the sombre tone of gardener's question time, it's something a bit more populist. And has a guerrilla gardener.

Am I off the mark in thinking gardening is a quintessentially british pursuit? In the way that it's carried out, at least.
