The Beechgrove Garden, 2013 Episode 23 of 26

In the Beechgrove Garden, Carole and Chris finally decide on the fate of the poor old peach tree. Beleaguered by red spider mite and scab, but after it has produced one of its best crops ever, is it still for the chop? Chris also revisits some of his experimental herbaceous planting to see if the new varieties planted have lived up to their claims.

Meanwhile Jim and George have been in beautiful Speyside, helping out during the final stages of a garden around a restored Wool Mill at Knockando near Aberlour. The garden will feature plants that are used in the dyeing process.

Jim and George are taken on a tour around the mill by the local school children who are the expert tour guides and they plant the plants that would have been used to create the colours for a new tartan.
