In the Beechgrove Garden episode 4 2018, after the success of the no-dig observation of last year, Jim is extending the trial into the polytunnel, comparing conventionally grown vegetables with easy-grow no-dig vegetable plots. Brian is in Armadale, helping Lesley Welsh and her two children to create a bespoke vegetable plot for the family. Lesley wants the children to be able to easily grow their own and take their own home-grown produce from fork to fork.
Brian is also in Tranent, visiting Wattie Russell. Wattie was nominated as one of Scotland’s Garden Heroes, and Brian visits to see why. Wattie’s inspirational, but tightly packed, garden in Tranent is full of spring beauties with around 500 different pots of colour.
