The Beechgrove Garden, 2011 Episode 11 of 26

Gardening programme celebrating Scottish gardens, with horticultural tips and tricks, presented by Jim McColl, Carole Baxter, Lesley Watson, George Anderson and Carolyn Spray.

Finally all the wee tender plants are out of the greenhouses and strutting their stuff out in the garden. This leaves space in the greenhouse, but not for long. Carole and Lesley waste no time in filling up the greenhouse with some annuals from seed, that will give fanciful later colour - with names like calceloria 'bubblegum mix' or primula 'tickle my fancy'.

Carole is also planting out her geranium family garden trial, creating a whole garden of geraniums with all manner of varieties from trailing, climbers and scented to the good old favourites, proving what a versatile family it is.

Carolyn is with Lisa Higgins and Geoff Montford in Langside, Glasgow. They have a difficult shaded area in the back garden on a slope, where they want to grow something practical and pretty. Lisa has made a real effort to get started and Carolyn gives the couple a mini French cottage potager, with lots of herb pots, flowers and vegetables as well as hanging baskets and wall pots.
