The Beechgrove Garden, 2013 Episode 6 of 26

Jim settles our range of citrus in their new home, while Carole compares the outside grown fig to the rampantly growing Brown Turkey Fig in the fruit house.

Jim and George are tickling the sickly peach to pollinate one last time as well as pruning the vines and tackling some fruity problems in the orchard.

Chris visits Brogdale Farm near Faversham. Brogdale is the home of the National Fruit Collection. The collection is one of the largest in the world and includes over 3,500 named apple, pear, plum, cherry, bush fruit, vine and cob nut cultivars. At the time of Chris's visit, Brogdale are holding their hanami festival, which is traditionally Japanese and is a festival dedicated to celebrate cherry blossom.

Lynn takes us on a trip to the Glasgow Flower Market to select some blooms for a flower arrangement to celebrate Beechgrove's 35th anniversary. 35th anniversary colours are apparently 'coral' and or 'jade', so Lynn has a bit of a floral challenge on.
