Series following a year in Carol Klein's garden at Glebe Cottage. In July and August there's staking to be done, roses to deadhead and cuttings of asters to take.

Plantswoman Carol Klein shares with us a year in her garden at Glebe Cottage in north Devon.

In July and August the garden is building to a peak. Flowers are at their very brightest and most beautiful with geraniums abounding and the fragrance of lilies pervading the garden. To keep the garden looking glorious, there is staking to be done, roses to deadhead and cuttings of asters to take.

Carol sets to work in her hot borders. She plants out the castor oil plants, grown from seed, and places cannas, gingers and dahlias to create an exotic, hot, explosion of colour.

Carol also takes a walk along the dunes of her local beach, Braunton Burrows to seek out the native sea holly, a plant she would dearly love to grow in her own garden.
