“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” according to William Shakespeare, although plantswoman Carol Klein demonstrates that not all plants related to roses are heavily perfumed. Meanwhile, things are not so rosy in the Longmeadow garden where Monty Don is grappling with some unruly blooms as well as taking a few herb cuttings.
Nick Macer leaves his Gloucestershire plant nursery behind to take a trip to London. He visits a garden to see how, as a result of two different microclimates, it’s possible to fill the space with a dazzling array of diverse plants that seemingly should never be seen together.
Monty Don is at Longmeadow giving advice on how to deal with unruly roses, taking cuttings of herbs and planting a new tree, and Carol Klein continues her series on plant families, exploring some of the most popular relations of the rose. Nick Macer is in London visiting a town garden where two different microclimates offer very different planting opportunities, Adam Frost reveals his plans for his new garden, while Flo Headlam is in the heart of Bristol, transforming unpromising grey spaces into vibrant green ones.
