It's August, the sunshine month, and Monty will be surrounding himself with summer's sweetest smells when he shows us what to plant for fragrance in his walled garden.

Rachel too will be in search of intoxicating scent on a visit to RHS Harlow Carr, seeing fabulous displays of philadelphus, night scented stocks as well as reveling in the fantastic fragrance of their sweet pea collection.

Carol returns to her native Lancashire and discovers aromatic roses thriving in the wild. She also seeks out some of the best-scented garden roses on a visit to Dutton Hall in the picturesque Ribble Valley, which has a collection of over 200 species.

And back at Longmeadow, Monty will be in his herb garden cutting back marjorman, rosemary and thyme to ensure abundance for the rest of the summer, as well as sharing tips on how to propagate culinary herbs.
