Beechgrove Garden, 2012 Episode 17 of 26

Duration: 30 minutes

Jim is reveling in the produce in the fruit cage. The gooseberries have been cordoned, making them easy to tend and best of all easy to pick. The redcurrants look like they have been polished and are red, ripe and ready.

Carole looks at the results of her perennials flowering from seed in one year, and is delighted with the results and with how economical this method is.

Lesley is in the pretty and productive Potager garden, planting oriental veg as well as showing how to make a flowery ice bowl to make a wonderful centerpiece to a dinner table.

Carole is also in Cove helping Eleanor Paterson create a low maintenance garden and Jim visits one of Aberdeen's hidden garden gems, the University's Cruikshank Botanical Garden.
