Beechgrove Garden

BBC Scotland’s gardening programme. Although in 2010, the Beechgrove Garden allowed Carole Baxter and Carolyn Spray to spend too much airtime being a bit silly, the 2011 series seems to be back on track with the stalwart Jim McColl at the helm. Well worth watching for sensible, down-to-earth advice on planting for colder climates. Beechgrove also involve themselves in some interesting community garden projects, many of which are on historical sites. Recent episodes, along with the radio edition, Beechgrove Potting Shed, are available on:
BBC iPlayer
