Garden Gnomes are out!

I have a renewed appreciation for the world after reading a point in thisgarden-gnome-pipe-9r article which advised people selling their homes not to have gnomes in their garden Рor at least hide them behind the begonias until the house is sold.

The Chelsea Flower Show has banned garden gnomes in their displays and I think they should also be banned in gardens. These hideous little ornaments do nothing for a garden apart from tell people that you’re cheap and nasty and couldn’t be bothered finding anything else to add interest to your landscape.

I shouldn’t be so dogmatic about these but I detest them more than stepping in dog poo. I wrote a previous article over at my Lawn Mower Review site that listed a few options for them namely creating an obstacle course for your riding lawn mower.

I feel justified now that others have a similar opinion.
