Beechgrove is Back on Thursday 17th October on BBC2 Scotland and on Sunday 20th October at 09.30am on BBC2 network
Sadly it’s the last programme of the present series and Jim, Carole, George, Chris and Carolyn will be helping the gardeners batten down the hatches for the winter.
Before we do the team will review the garden and the season, after a very slow start we celebrate successes- for example, 400 cucumbers and award winning monster show veg. And talking of monsters, there will also be the final marrow competition weigh in. Who has the biggest and best marrow?
The last programme will be full of jobs for the autumn and into the winter and projects that we can all have a go at no matter what the weather.
Carole visits Ken and Kristina Dupar’s restoration of a Victorian garden in Cromarty. Cromarty is well known as being an apple producing area and Ken and Kristina have a huge range of apple trees including a still productive apple tree that is 120 years old as well other more youthful apples of every description.
Beechgrove will be back in Spring 2014.
Programme 26 - Collecting Seeds
Chris gives us a quick tutorial on how to collect and store seeds over the winter and when to start sowing them.
He also looks at the different methods of collection and preparation using vinegar or even sand paper.
