Beechgrove Garden, 2013 Episode 12 of 26

Duration: 30 minutes

Carole and Carolyn are creating a new Scottish herb garden with a range of hardy medicinal and edible herbs.

Jim grows his sweet peas in cordon style, regimented, with straight stems. Meanwhile, Carole is growing a profusion of sweet peas up a range of supports to see how well they run.

George and Carole review where we are with our trial of Award of Garden Merit veg plants.

Young garden designer James Fraser visits Margaret Gimblett in her garden in Grandtully Perthshire to appreciate it with a contemporary designer's eye. This is an acre garden set on a windy, stony hillside, where Margaret has created a garden for all seasons including a small walled area with climbers, herbaceous beds and at the centre a mirror pool. A major feature is a perfectly executed Japanese water garden complete with tea house.
