Cherrie McIlwaine
PresenterCherrie McIlwaine
Cherrie's introduction to the world of gardening came at the age of five when she helped her dad to turn a one acre plot into a lush green lawn. She now lives in a small terraced house with a not-so-small terraced garden which she loves for its rebellious tendencies.

Julie BrownJulie Brown
Julie has produced the show for 16 years. She says the experience is not unlike raising a family - both respond to careful nurturing in order to grow and flourish! Her favourite plants are roses, lilies hellebores and clematis.

Jim Bradley Jim Bradley
Jim is a well known local gardening expert and has been involved with BBC Northern Ireland gardening programmes for the past 16 years. Jim's pedigree is impressive as his ancestor is the famous 19th century plant hunter, Augustine Henry, who brought a range of plants such as clematis and honeysuckle from China to Europe.

Joan ChristieJoan Christie
Joan inherited her love of gardening from her father, who was a nurseryman. In her last garden, which she tended for over 40 years, she planted acers, rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. Now, at a seaside location, she is tackling a new design and plans to favour an entirely different group of plants.

Keith CrawfordKeith Crawford
Keith has been a regular contributor to Gardeners' Corner for over 12 years. Keith believes that gardening should always be enjoyable and tries to share his enthusiasm for all things horticultural in a relaxed and entertaining manner.
