-- this relates to the fact that `gamm' assumes that the correlation structure
is nested within the random effect grouping structure, so in fact the
`|garden' in the correlation formula is redundant (see ?gamm on correlation).
Clearly this should be dealt with more gracefully... I'll try to do so for
the next release. In the meantime just remove the redundant grouping factor.
