The ground is softening, the days are lightening: time to get back out there, fix whatever damage winter has done, and make plans for the new year. That’s Monty Don’s task as we return to Longmeadow. Along with delivering a barrow-load of tips for coaxing your garden back into life as spring approaches, Monty’s also exploring an issue that will have been on a lot of responsible gardeners’ minds over the past few months: plastic.
Recently, drives to reduce our consumption have gathered pace in all spheres of life. Horticulture is no different, with seed-sowing being the first activity that often uses plastic, but needn’t.
Elsewhere, Adam Frost advises on sprucing up a tiny backyard, and a Wolverhampton couple show off their own garden with its host of surprises.
New series. The imminent arrival of spring heralds a new gardening year at Longmeadow, as Monty Don reveals his new plans for the year and takes stock of any winter damage. As well as offering seasonal hints and tips, the presenter embarks on a mission to reduce the use of plastic in his garden, starting by exploring alternative containers to use for seed sowing. Adam Frost brings his design expertise to a tiny back yard to demonstrate that, with a bit of ingenuity, every inch of space can count. A Wolverhampton couple show off their inspirational garden, packed to bursting with surprises.
