Episode 1: Gardening with Carol Klein

Summary

The horticultural expert continues to offer advice to Britain's gardeners from her own cottage garden in Devon, this time during the spring season. Carol shares creative ways for viewers to make use of space in their vegetable gardens for potatoes, and discusses the joy of dividing snowdrops and primroses to increase their number. Later, she carries out vital jobs in the greenhouse, from pricking out seedlings to digging up and potting up last year's dahlia tubers.

Review

Whether you’ve recently discovered the joy of growing things or are an old green-fingered hand at gardening, Carol Klein’s new series promises both inspiration and useful know-how to make your spring garden flourish. Filmed at Glebe Cottage in Devon, her home for more than 40 years, and aided by Lakeland Terrier Fifi, she starts by explaining how to divide snowdrops and primroses. 

She’s also aware that lots of us have tried growing veg during lockdown, so each programme has an edible element. Even if you haven’t got a garden, she says it’s still possible to grow spuds and she shows us how.
