SHREWSBURY. We turned the corner and walked down into a garden of unsurpassed vulgarity, predictable planting, conventional clustering and shrill colours, crudely juxtaposed. Well, I said (2009) the Dingle Garden (a confection in a disused quarry) appears to have been the creation of Percy Thrower whose benevolent but tedious persona once dominated the TV projection of Gardens. His Blue Peter garden had been trashed once by activists from the Kindness to Plants Movement. We stood and gazed, and a half naked man with a Rottweiler strutted past.
