With the prospect of a long bank holiday weekend ahead for some of us, Monty has plenty of advice – from pruning blackcurrants and taking cuttings to planting bulbs for flowering this autumn.
Carol Klein finds a collection of plants that are at their peak right now, and gives her advice on how to grow one of the late summer garden stunners, the monarda, while Adam Frost makes the finishing touches to the Leicestershire couple’s garden, which he helped them start from scratch earlier this year. Joe Swift meets Peter Moore, who has spent his working life breeding plants for our gardens, and Nick Bailey shows us how we can use colour to the best effect in pots and borders. We also meet Kelvin Archer, who grows world record-breaking gooseberries in his back garden in Cheshire.
