Gardeners' Corner with David Maxwell

David Maxwell meets Lady Dunleath and Anna Hudson at Ballywalter Park to see what's growing behind the walls of the 270-acre estate, and he visits Barbara Pilcher's herb garden.

In this first programme in August, David Maxwell heads to Ballywalter Park, home of Lord and Lady Dunleath, to enjoy a stroll round the Walled Garden. Anna Hudson shows him the fruits of her labour and gives some handy hints on getting the best from your summer fruits.

There's a visit to the summer-scented lavender fields in Wexford, and David heads to the north coast, where he meets a family growing an old Irish orchard.

Barbara Pilcher is on hand to give tips on planting, and enjoying, your summer herbs, and Dr Rory Mellon tells us where to find the best wild orchids this summer.

Take a look at our gallery to see where David has been out and about.
