    Here's you chance to have a look at the garden featured in the show.

    These pictures show the garden in its current state. Each month we'll add more pictures to show you how the transformation of the garden is progressing.

    August Gallery

    The corner part of the front border. So much growth that the statue has disappeared!

    The front border in all it's glory!

    The border was full of bind weed - now in the bucket!

    The front of Janet's house with lots of summer colour from the pots

    The Ashmeads Kernel u-cordon tree needs to be supported.

    The vegetable plot - now out of control!

    Janet is still cropping the runner beans

    Rhubarb's looking good!

    Potatoes are growing all over the plot!

    Now that's what I call a pest problem!

    Janet has her work cut out to get the plot back under control!

    Our raised alpine bed

    This area has become a dumping ground for the children's toys!

    The help area will be finished by the end of the show - promise!

    The grass has recovered after being repaired last month

    The quiet area - what a change!

    The rose bed in the middle of the lawn

    This is Janet's newest border - the Dahlia's are stunning!

    Another view of the new border!

    Bathed in sunshine, the lawn is really looking good now!


    Don't forget to come back again soon and see how the garden is coming along!
