South Gloucestershire

Eric Robson and the team are garden trouble-shooting in South Gloucestershire. The panellists are: Bunny Guinness, Anne Swithinbank and Chris Beardshaw.

This week we revisit two listeners' gardens, in Nottingham and Shrewsbury, as part of an ongoing series.

Questions answered in the programme:
How soon should I start removing the bottom branches of hornbeams to pleach them?
I have a Pittosporum whose leaves are meant to turn pink - but they haven't, why?
Tips for creating a rockery in a sunny corner of my garden?
Suggestions included: Sun Roses and Rock Roses (Helianthemum)
What can be done about my neighbours very invasive bamboo, which seems to prefer our lawn over theirs?
How can I soften the edges of a concrete path cutting through a flower meadow?
When and how can I prune into the hard wood of my Chilean Lantern (Crinodendron hookerianum)?
How can I encourage my single-stemmed Aeonium to develop side stems?

Produced by Lucy Dichmont and Amy Racs
A Somethin' Else production for BBC Radio 4.
