In Adam Frost’s garden, he gives his tips on lawn repair, grows some unusual vegetables and plants a seasonal container.

Advolly Richmond brings us up to date in her history of lawns by exploring the trend for ever more sophisticated machinery in the quest for the perfect sward for sport and recreation. Frances Tophill travels to Devon, where she meets an enthusiast who grows a variety of vegetables which, once planted, return year after year.

In Essex, we visit a back garden bursting with over 100 different types of clematis, and in Worcestershire, we are given a tour of a national collection of spring-flowering elder. And we share more gardens sent in by our viewers.
