I have a renewed appreciation for the world after reading a point in this article [link since removed] which advised people selling their homes not to have gnomes in their garden – or 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.
