Farewell, John Cushnie

Sad news today that John Cushnie, the garden writer and BBC Gardeners' Question Time panellist for 15 years, has died of a heart attack. Garden pundits - in common with anyone who is in the public eye for any time at all - can become irritating the more one is exposed to their funny little ways. But Cushnie could always make me laugh - even when I felt he was being at his most outrageous. He'll be much missed.
