The Beechgrove Garden, 2011 Episode 25 of 26

It's the day of reckoning for George Anderson as he lifts his secret show veg that he has been cosseting at Beechgrove for weeks, and takes them wrapped up in cotton wool to the Dalkeith show. Find out what the result is.

Carole Baxter is thinking ahead to Christmas, showing how to force bulbs for Christmas display. Lesley Watson is also in bulb mode as she adds bulbs to the Equinox garden, which is designed to look good at both the spring and autumn equinox.

George and Carole also revisit George's allotments to see how his rust and white rot has come on with his leeks and onions.

Jim McColl is in Newburgh in Fife. Newburgh used to be the biggest fruit-growing area in Scotland and the Newburgh Orchard Group have been working to revamp the orchards that have been there since Franciscan times. They are trying to put Newburgh on the map as Scotland's fruit town.
