Duration: 30 minutes

In the Beechgrove vegetable garden, harvest is in full swing, but Jim is also looking to extend the season of picking by sowing some overwintering vegetables. Carole and George clearly know their onions as they look at different techniques in growing shallots and onions in order to rid them of white rot.

George also reports from his own allotment in Edinburgh and compares how he has fared that bit further south to Beechgrove. Jim and Carole plant up late colour for containers in keeping with the 35th anniversary colours theme and this time going for an emerald theme. Jim has been growing a range of tasty tomatoes, which are given the ultimate test. Jim investigates what 'taste' means with the help of Abertay University.
