Gardening show packed with good ideas, tips, advice from experts and timely reminders to get the most out of your garden, whatever its size or type.
A new gardening year begins at Longmeadow and Monty reveals his new plans for the year as well as taking stock of any winter damage. As well as seasonal hints and tips he is embarking on a mission to reduce the use of plastic in his garden and starts by exploring alternative containers to use for seed sowing.
Monty makes plans for a bumper harvest of fruit when he adds raspberries to his fruit garden and gives advice on how to plant bare-root trees. Carol Klein explores one of the unsung heroes of the spring border, the Daphne. Joe Swift has designs on brightening up dull and uninteresting spaces with pots full of colour that can be planted now.
At Longmeadow, Monty Don is making plans for the summer, so he starts dahlias and other tender perennials into growth and sows annual climbing plants to light up his borders with colour. Frances Tophill visits The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to meet an expert on the most exotic plant of the tropical border, ginger. Plus the team explore one of the most colourful perennials of the summer in the Isle of Wight, visiting a garden which is filled with daylilies.
It is the busiest gardening weekend of the year and Monty has plenty of ideas and inspiration, from planting summer bulbs to sowing perennials. Carol Klein profiles the bravest and most colourful of spring flowering plants when she delves into the botany of the hellebore and we travel to Sheffield to visit a garden crammed full of colour and new ideas.
There is a full hour of gardening from Longmeadow this week and Monty gets to grips with a new project, beefs up his borders by dividing perennials and celebrates spring flowering shrubs.Frances Tophill is growing vegetables this year on an allotment and this week she begins to prepare her plot and, if your shed is chock full of out-of-date seeds, old compost, dirty pots and rusty tools, Nick Bailey has lots of hints and tips on how to get everything shipshape for the season ahead. Adam Frost explores a tropical garden in Dorset and meets a man who is passionate about growing unusual and exotic plants from seed, we travel to Suffolk to meet a woman who collects and grows a wide range of bellflowers and Carol Klein profiles the best of the season's flowers - this week it is the camellia.
