Beechgrove is looking forward to exceeding our “five a day” this week. Carole is tending to the fig, citrus and grapevine meanwhile, Brian is scheming in his polytunnel. 

Brian is also at home in Scone with his children Ben and Eilidh. Brian, Ben and Eilidh are keen to encourage families to garden together and this week they are showing how to make; an edible wigwam, a veg plot out of an old paddling pool and fun flower seed bombs.

George visits Mike Thompson’s traditional, Scottish country cottage garden overlooking the Tay Valley in Abernethy.
