With the official start of spring and Mothering Sunday only days away, Monty Don and the team look at the practical ways to achieve a better looking garden at this busy time of year.

Monty is selecting and planting climbing roses at his garden in Herefordshire and gives plenty of advice on how to get them to thrive. A visit to a national collection of rambling roses in Gloucestershire provides plenty of inspiration for gardeners to choose different varieties to suit different garden situations. Monty also gets on with some timely and essential border maintenance tasks that we could all be doing in our gardens this weekend.

With a large part of the UK already suffering from drought conditions, Carol Klein looks at how some plants have adapted themselves to grow in the driest of soils and gives us her choice of plants which, for those of us who may not be able to water our gardens this year, should survive with the minimum of attention.

And Joe Swift continues his design series looking at different gardens to find out what we could learn from their layout and how to apply those rules to our own back gardens.
