The Beechgrove Garden, 2013 Episode 19 of 26

In the Beechgrove Garden, it's time for some autumn lawn maintenance with Jim. George and Jim are also strimming and tidying the wild area while Carole takes another look at her colourful chilli collection. Chris is with Edwin and Pat Richardson in Anstruther, to help them with a small but badly overgrown corner in their otherwise lovely and prize-winning garden. The area gives shelter from the prevailing westerly wind, but the trees and shrubs have grown too big and are entangled. They want to know what to take out, what to prune and what to replace.

Jim visits Arthur and June Martins' garden in Clovenfords, Galashiels - a large rural garden with fruit trees, raised vegetable beds, greenhouses, polytunnel, pond and an active beehive. All of the features have been designed and created by the owners and are excellent examples of organic gardening and what can be achieved with a bit of imagination and hard work.
