This week...

The whole Beechgrove team are on the ferry to the Orkney Isles this week. Famously a place of only two seasons, 18 hours of light or 18 hours of dark, with constant winds but mild with little or no frost.

The assumption always is that nothing much grows on Orkney in those conditions but Jim, Carole and George find that is far from the case and discover the determined gardeners of Orkney and how much they have achieved to the extent that there is a thriving Orkney Garden Festival across the islands.

Jim, Carole and George host a Beechgrove Gardeners’ Question and Answer session in Kirkwall and visit a host of good gardens right on the edge of Scotland on South Ronaldsay.
