Beechgrove Garden – Ep.8 2014

Jim McColl is sowing hardy annuals direct and comparing it to planting plugs. It should create a succession of flowers all summer long. George Anderson may have lost the (veggie) plot as he sows some very unusual crops, from rat’s tail radish to electric daisies and mustard spinach. George will try them all out to see if they are worth the effort to grow them. Meanwhile, Carole Baxter creates a whole mountain landscape in miniature in troughs with tiny rock plants.

Carole also visits a garden restoration in the Trossachs. Until recently, Dun Dubh was a hidden Victorian garden. With views and terraces that stretch down to Loch Ard, it is painstakingly being uncovered and brought back to life as a stunning six acre garden.

Chris Beardshaw takes a third visit to his new-build families to move them on to the next stage of development in their gardens. In Cove, he is showing how to plant and train climbers and in Portlethen he is talking nuts and currants
