It's Easter and the biggest gardening weekend of the year, so even if you haven't yet dusted off your lawnmower, there's plenty of advice and inspiration - from large projects to tackling weeds.

At Longmeadow, Monty is getting started on the vegetable plot, where he recommends a palette of potatoes for delicious summer crops. He also returns to his newly created pond, where he is showing how to conceal the liner with an attractive edge.

Carol Klein celebrates the humble daffodil. She travels to Lincolnshire and discovers drifts of wild daffodils, but also meets a man whose passion is to preserve and identify a historic collection of cultivated varieties.

Rachel de Thame helps a group of military wives as they begin growing cut flowers for the first time.

And Joe concludes his series on design when he shows how even the smallest garden can have areas where focal points and plants can create a pleasing effect.
