Never mind the early daffodils that are starting to poke through the earth or the sound of the first cuckoo in the distance. The first real sign of spring is the return of Gardeners’ World to our TV screens.

After a challenging winter that’s seen most of our gardens covered in snow, drenched in rain or rigid with frost, it’s time to get out the secateurs and start pruning. Monty Don shows us how, as well as revealing the changes he’s made to Longmeadow over the winter months. Meanwhile, Carol Klein revels in the diverse varieties of snowdrops and Rachel de Thame visits the Cambridge Botanic Garden.


New series. The horticultural programme returns for another gardening year, beginning with Monty Don's tips for tackling timely pruning tasks. He also demonstrates the best way to lay a new path. Carol Klein is in Oxfordshire, where she explores the diversity of snowdrops and reveals the lengths to which some gardeners will go to in order to claim the latest varieties. Plus, Rachel de Thame discovers plants with year-round appeal at the Cambridge Botanical Gardens and Joe Swift shares simple design plans for a romantic cottage garden.
