Beechgrove is on at 7:30pm on Thursday 18th September on BBC2 Scotland and on Sunday 21st September at 08:30am on BBC2 network.
In the Beechgrove Garden, George and Head Gardener, Jane carefully unveil the show veg before Jane takes them to compete in the local show. Will they be top bananas or will there be sour grapes? It’s a misconception often held that wild areas in the garden don’t take much maintenance. George is also in Beechgrove’s wild wood and shows that low maintenance doesn’t mean no maintenance.
Jim and Carole are also in the wilds as they help out with the creation of a new community garden; the Wild Wood Garden of Glenorchy. Wild by name and nature as the site itself is a stunning location of natural beauty. The community are not trying to force a cultivated manicured garden on to it but are working with nature to enhance and highlight it. The community has also created bird hides and feeding stations, and are teaching visitors to forage allowing visitors to get closer to both flora and fauna.
A sneak peek for this week's programme is coming soon.
Programme 20 - Planting Irises
Whilst admiring the gravel garden, Carole plants a bearded iris in a spot with excellent drainage.
