Again, I don't get why they have to fight over materials - how much better could those arrangements have looked if everybody got what they needed/wanted ...
For me, the main difference was that the Allotment Challenge encouraged people to try and grow stuff themselves - it was aimed at novices and keen gardeners alike. This Flower show is for (semi-) professionals. You don't whip up a sculpture like that in an afternoon whereas the flower challenge on TBAC was usually something you could actually have a go at.
I skipped ahead a few times, so correct me if I am wrong, but have they ever explained how you keep those sculptures and all those lovely plants in shape? So many of the plants they used would not survive for long anyway, expecially outside. Honestly, my favourite thing was the plant nursery before the contestants got their hands on them.
Anyway, congratulations to Ryan and Andrew. I am glad they weren't literal with the brief. It amost looked a bit Alice in Wonderland.
I liked the braid on Rapunzels hair.
Great set of guest judges.
If any of you have seen Your Home Made Perfect - an interior design/architecture show that uses Virtual Reality to help contestants make decisions - they just put out a call for a similar garden themed show. It will probably take quite a while until it airs, but I am looking forward to that.
